Food Services Mission Statement
The Mission of McHenry District #15 Food Service Department is to provide nutritious, appealing meals, in compliance with the USDA Nutritional Guidelines. We will endeavor to encourage and guide your children into making healthy choices. Our smiling and friendly staff will help your children feed their bodies, so our teachers can feed their minds.
When ala carte purchases resume this school year, the cafeteria will move to a changeless system. Cashiers will accept cash or check at the register for purchase and all remaining funds will be put on the student’s account. These funds will remain on the student’s account until they are used or a refund is requested through the foodservice department.
Free and Reduced Program
If you are on the free and reduced program even though you might have been on it last year, you MUST reapply every year – You have until the end of August to re-apply, if you don’t you will be charged full-price lunches. Forms will be sent home with first day packets to each family. Please return as soon as possible.
