Parents, We have put together a chart to show the amount of money needed to finish out the year on a day by day basis. Please click on the link below to find the amount for just breakfast, just lunch or both.  The chart shows the amount for full pay as well as reduced.  We are striving to end the year with a clean slate on charges and you play a large part in the plan.  Thank you, for your continued support of our program.

                                             Meal Requirements

 The old rule still holds true, every child who purchases a full meal must have a fruit, juice or vegetable included in their choices on their trays. Whether the meal is purchased at full price, reduced, or at no cost to the parents.



Breakfast must have 3 to 4 items:

                           grain, meat/meat alternative, fruit or juice, milk

                           (grain and fruit or juice are the only requirements)

Lunch must have 3 to 5 items:

                           meat/meat alternative, vegetable, grain, fruit, milk

                                       (fruit or vegetable are the only requirements, both can be taken)





       Water and Ice from the dispensers are free at all meals. 



 We accept cash or checks (make sure to include a phone number).  Or if you prefer, you can prepay online at My Payment Plus.  As stated above Sumner County allows charges for middle schools of meals up to 3 days worth of meals (breakfast + lunch x 3) = $14.25 for full priced meals and $2.10 for reduced meals.  


Money sent in will be placed in a general account that can be used for any purchases. 

If you prefer please state on check or other means if you want the money to go for meals only.


 This Institute is an Equal Opportunity Provider.
