Food Services

We recognize that nutrition impacts classroom performance, so we have designed our menus and food preparation to provide excellent nutrition and teach health wellness. We prepare our lunch menus to provide both appeal and proper nutrition to our students.

Food Services Staff

Please feel free to contact the Food Service Department at (231) 834.5888 between 6:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. with any questions. View the Administration & Staff page to find contact information for our Food Service staff.

Breakfast at Grant

All students may eat breakfast at school free of charge. Kindergarten through fourth grade students pick up a sack breakfast to take to their classroom, and middle and high school students may go to the cafeteria if they choose to eat breakfast at school.

Healthy Choices—Our Menu

The variety of our menus ensures that our students get all of the necessary nutrients associated with good health, clear thinking, and a balanced diet. We teach the importance of nutritious meals while encouraging good eating habits. We also encourage parents to help their children eat healthy, nutritious foods both at school and at home. 

Paying for Lunches

We ask that Grant families use the SendMoneyToSchool payment system for all school lunch payments. This system allows payments via credit (Visa, Mastercard, Discover) and debit cards. 

If you have more than one child in our schools, you can designate amounts to different student accounts. You can also check the student’s account through the system. 

There is a small, flat fee of $1.50 per transaction to cover the additional cost of this process. (Only one transaction fee applies when depositing into more than one student account, as long as it you do it in a single transaction.) 

If your child doesn’t know his/her lunch ID number, please contact Food Service Director Annie Pascoe (231) 834.5888 to obtain it prior to setting up your online account. 

We ask that you maintain a minimum balance of $10.00 in your child’s account. 

Charging for Lunches

Food Service Department is dedicated to providing healthy meals to all students according to the federal guidelines.  Parents are expected to prepay for their student meals through their food service account and this bank account is decreased when meals and food are purchased. Parents can put limits or stipulations on their student’s account if they wish. This is a prepay system and therefore students/parents should not expect to charge meals and then pay later.

The food service staff believes that all students need to be nourished in order to do well in school and daily life, and therefore no complete meals (does not include extras or ala carte) will be denied any student if they owe money. Reminder notes, phone calls, and low balance emails will be made frequently to remind parents that their child owes money. Occasionally the student may be denied participation in a school activity such as a field trip, school dance, school party, etc. until this bill is paid.

Per federal guidelines all debt must be paid by the end of the school year. Positive student balances will be carried over to the next year for all students and adults.
