2023-2024 Lunch

Students can bring their own lunch or create a school lunch from cafeteria offerings in two serving lines every day. To ensure speed of service, students are strongly encouraged to review the daily menu here. It is greatly appreciated to have an idea of what you would like to purchase before you come through the line.

The cost for a Trojan Lunch is $4.25. Lunch consists of 5 components: entre, grain item, vegetable, fresh fruit and milk. Students must choose 3 of the components (one must be a fruit or a vegetable) to have your meal considered a lunch. A student may choose up to 2 servings of fruit and vegetables (fruit juice is limited to 1 per meal).

Because we participate in the National School Lunch Program, we can provide free and reduced price (.40) lunches to students who qualify. Financial guidelines and applications are available throughout the school year on our Free & Reduced Price Meal Program Page. Participation is confidential, and students access this benefit by using their Meal Time account just like everyone else.

Ala Carte offerings include Entrees, sandwiches, pizza, fresh vegetable trays, & yogurt parfaits. Snacks offered for purchase include baked chips, ice cream novelties, fruit snacks, bottled water, Gatorade & Snapple products.

Paying for Lunches

Touchless pay stations are used in the Cafeteria via a software program called Mealtime. Temporary scan cards will be distributed to freshmen during orientation. These can be digitally stored on the students phone or iPad. Once student ID’s are distributed, these can also be used to pay in the lunch line.

The café does not accept payment at the point of sale nor give change. It is strongly encouraged that payments be deposited through Alternately, check/cash payments can be submitted via our dropbox.

Pay online at MyMealtime

Your MyMealtime account can be “loaded” with money and used as needed to purchase food in the cafeteria at meals. Money can be deposited directly through the software, or via cash/check (see below). Every student has an account, connected with their student ID number.
We encourage everyone to use this account.

Pay by check or deposit

Checks or cash may be dropped off in the secure dropbox outside the cafeteria (bottom of the stairs- Door #10). These are then credited to the student’s MyMealtime account. (Please be sure to include the student’s name and ID number on the check. Allow 24 hours for processing.)

Please note: If a student owes more than $10 on their account, parents will be contacted by the Cafeteria manager. At no time will a student be ever denied a meal despite their account status.
