All students will receive their USDA 'Meal Deal" breakfasts and lunches for FREE for the 2021-22 school year. This is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program.
  • Students must take the required components to make a reimbursable meal in order for it to be free. Reimbursable meal details will be displayed in the cafeteria or during meal delivery. The cashier/school staff will help students construct a full reimbursable meal.
  • Nothing needs to be sent to the school in order to have a student receive meals for free. Free meals are automatically offered to all students regardless of income.
  • If students purchase extras (such as a bottled drink) available in the serving line, a la carte (such as a singular milk or entree), snacks from vending machines, etc., the student will be charged for these items. If your student intends to purchase items other than a meal, please make sure there are adequate funds on their account.
  • Families that believe they would normally qualify for free and reduced meals should still submit a free meal application as this can help with qualifying for other assistance programs for the family and student. Benefits from completing applications stretch far beyond the cafeteria and impact students in the classroom and at home. All information submitted in these applications is private and confidential!

2021-2022 Breakfast

Breakfast is served weekdays in the cafeteria 45 minutes before the first bell. Short on time? Wake up late? Don’t skip the most important meal of the day! A wide selection of nutritious grab & go items available to start the day off right and get you to class on time. Bishop Chatard participates in the School Breakfast Program (SBP).
  • The USDA free breakfast 'meal deal' consists of your choice of at least 3 of the 4 following groups: a whole grain, meat/meat alternative, fruit and milk. One choice must be a fruit.
Breakfast Menu 2021-22


Students can bring their own lunch or create a school lunch from cafeteria offerings in two serving lines every day.
  • The free USDA 'Meal Deal' consists of a minimum of 3 of the following 5 food groups: any entrée/sandwich, vegetable, fruit, whole grain and milk. The meal must include a fruit or vegetable. Seconds and ala carte items are not included.
  • 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.
Lunch Menu 2021-22 Daily Special Pricing 2021-22
Aug. 2021: Due to product shortages and supply chain issues, the cafeteria is subject to daily changes and reduced offerings. We are working with our vendors to remedy these issues but the industry is facing an unprecedented challenge in procuring basic items. We appreciate your patience.


Paying for Lunches

Currently we do not accept payment or make change in the cafeteria line. Scan in your student ID card for touchless payment. Incoming freshmen will be given a temporary digital barcode until they receive their card.


Pay online at MyMealtime

Your MyMealtime account can be “loaded” with money and used as needed to purchase food in the cafeteria at meals. Every student has one, connected with their student ID number.
We encourage everyone to use their account.

Pay by check or deposit

Checks or cash may be dropped off outside the cafeteria at (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.

Should I still apply for the Free/Reduced Meals Program this year? YES!

Families that believe they would normally qualify for free and reduced meals should still submit a free meal application as this can help with qualifying for other assistance programs for the family and student. Benefits from completing applications stretch far beyond the cafeteria and impact students in the classroom and at home.

  • Applications open July 19, 2021.

RT @cliffWISH8 The run this team is on, on paper, is remarkable. 13-0. Best start in school history. No one saw it coming. However, 'remarkable' doesn't do the coach you are staring at justice. Don't have enough time, or tears, to explain here. Full story ahead @WISH_TV at 5:50PM & 6:40PM
