Please Submit Your Meal Applications
Although meals are free for students, school districts are still required to collect meal applications. The information collected from the form is critical for academic and cafeteria-related funding. Your family may also qualify for additional benefits like free afterschool care or internet discounts.
Students will have two opportunities to get school breakfast this year. A hearty breakfast will be offered, free of charge, before the start of the school day at all schools. If your student did not get a breakfast before school, 2nd chance breakfast will be available at recess. Please note that only 1 breakfast is free.
Food Allergies and Special Diet Requests
If your student has a food allergy or dietary restriction due to medical reasons, please submit a new medical statement each school year.
Our Scratch Made Promise
For over 20 years the Peabody Cafeteria has been creating healthy meals that kids love. Peabody's Cafeteria is something special. On any given day you'll smell whole grain bread or pizza dough rising, see fresh local produce being prepped, and hear scratch-made sauces and soups sizzling.
Your child's health is our top priority which is why we cook our meals from scratch. It is our goal to teach our students life-long lessons about health and show them that healthy choices actually taste really good!
