Food Service Information for
School Year 2017-2018

The Montclair Public Schools participates in the National School Lunch Program.  We provide the five components of a complete lunch as required by the USDA.  These components are meat/protein alternative, bread/grain, vegetable, fruit and milk.  To obtain a full, reduced or free lunch at the listed price, the lunch must include at least three of the five components.  One of the three components taken must be a ½ cup of fruit and/or vegetable to be considered a full lunch.  If a complete lunch is not purchased, each item is purchased separately or à la carte.

Pay with MySchoolBucks

Free/Reduced Lunch Status

A free/reduced lunch application must be completed each year in order for a student to continue receiving free/reduced meals.  Each year’s application is valid only through the beginning of the next school year.  If a new application is not completed the student’s status will be changed to full price for meals during the month of October.

Why should I complete the free/reduced lunch application?

If you need assistance with the form, please visit your school's main office. They will be glad to help.
