Healthy Living – Muskegon Catholic Central
The Muskegon Catholic Central Food Service Department strives to serve healthy foods the students love! We analyze our recipes for nutrient content and food values using a food-based menu planning and analysis program that complies with the child nutrition guidelines for the National School Lunch Programs.
All students are offered at least 5 meal components each day at lunch (meat/meat alternative, grain (bread or pasta), 2 vegetables, fruit, and milk). Students can take all the items, or choose at least 3 items, which must include a fruit or vegetable to be considered a complete meal. Students with allergies should contact the Food Service Director for accommodations. Students with special dietary needs must have documentation on file from a Physician and turned into Kristi Wagenmaker in the elementary or Nichole Rasmussen in the 7-12 Office. Forms can be found on this website.
Pandemic food service benefits have been extended through this school year. All students are eligible to receive a free lunch. However, additional items beyond the standard lunch will be charged at the a la carte rates.
- Elementary: $2.70
- Middle School/ High School: $3.25
- Elementary Reduced Price Lunch: $0.40
- Middle School/High School Reduced Price Lunch: $0.40
Households interested in the Free/Reduce meal program must apply for the program every school year. Applications must occur within 30 days of the first day of school. If you have a current application on file, meal benefits from the previous school year will EXPIRE on the 31st day after the first day of school, which means that students will be charged FULL Price for the school meals after September 29, 2022.
Online Free/Reduced Applications and paper copies are now available. The Food and Nutrition Department office is located in the High School Cafeteria at 1145 W. Laketon, Muskegon, MI 49441
You can also manage your child’s food account with the K-12 online payment website. You are able to add money to your child’s account and it also gives you a history of what your child is purchasing.
