Food Service

Welcome to Huron School District's Food Service Department Site. Below you'll find a list of useful link and information regarding food service in the district.

Welcome Back!

Hello Parents! We had a great year in food service. Our students perceived our new menu items very well. We are looking forward to making some more changes to the menu for the upcoming school year! We will be featuring Discovery Kitchen events each month at your child’s school. During these events, we will be doing taste tests and an activity to highlight the fruit or vegetable focus of the month. We will also be giving out a few prizes during these events! So please keep a look out on the menu for these dates!

Our menus are available at https://huronschools.nutrislice.com. On this website, you can also filter by allergies if that is a concern of yours. For example, if your student has an egg allergy, you can choose “egg” under allergies and it will cross out every menu item that has egg in the ingredients. If your family received benefits for free and reduced breakfast and lunch, you will fall into a grace period in the beginning of the school year to allow time for you to fill out a new application. You are required to fill out a new application for the 18/19 school year. You can submit your application online at https://frapps.horizonsolana.com/HURS01. You can view instructions on filling out an application and download a printable version here. Please make sure you make that a priority.

We realize that it is possible for your child to forget his or her lunch money on occasion. The district’s policy, should this event occur, is to provide a meal to your student and apply a charge to his/her meal account. However, as negative charges are a financial burden to the district, we may restrict your student’s account or offer an alternative meal should the balance become largely negative. The full meal charging policy can be found here.

We launched www.mypaymentsplus.com last school year. This is a great tool to use to monitor your student’s meal account. You can add funds, view transaction history, set restrictions to their account, set up automatic payments and set up text alerts. If you do not already have an account, I highly recommend registering for one today.

Breakfast is becoming more popular as we are transitioning to a homemade approach. If you are running out of time in the morning, feel comfort in knowing that we offer your children a home cooked breakfast! We also offer fresh smoothies at the High School. Families that qualify for free or reduced lunch, also qualify for free or reduced breakfast!

We look forward to continue serving your children in the upcoming school year! Should you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me by phone or email at any time!


Meal Charging Policy

The Huron School District Food Services Department has an established meal charge policy in place for all students. The purpose of having a meal charging policy enables our schools to establish consistent and clear food service account procedures throughout the district. It allows the district to maintain fiscal integrity and solvency of the food service department while providing meal options that meet the nutritional needs of our students. We understand that although efforts to keep a child’s food service account in a positive standing are there, we understand that there are times where parents may forget or other unforeseen circumstances can occur. Meal charging shall be used as a temporary solution only and do not address a parent/guardian’s inability to pay. In those instances, an application for free or reduced meal benefits should be completed and turned in to the food service office. Students at all schools may charge three full lunches to their food service account. Once the student’s account goes negative, a parent/guardian will receive notification of the account balance with the expectation that the outstanding balance be paid in full. If a balance becomes exceptionally large with no expectation to pay by the parent, a student may be charged for an alternative lunch as a result until balance is paid in full. If a student’s balance becomes negative, we may also restrict a la carte purchasing as well.

The Food Service Department has set goals to ensure the success of the program and they are as follows:
  • To provide our students with a healthy, flavorful meal.
  • To treat all students with dignity and confidentiality in the serving line.
  • To ensure that no child goes hungry.
  • To foster open and clear communication with staff, students and parent/guardians.
  • To maintain the charge policy consistently throughout the district regarding meal charges.
