Nutrition Services

We are excited to partner with you in nourishing the minds and bodies of our students. 

Here, you'll find a range of helpful resources designed to make your experience with our school's food services as smooth and convenient as possible. From delicious and nutritious menus to accommodating special dietary needs, we're here to provide convenient, affordable, and inclusive services for our students and families. Explore our page to learn more.


At this time, only meals are funded.   If a student just wants to take milk, the price would be 50 cents. 


Application for Educational Benefits

Families must reapply every August; the benefit period from the first day of school until the last day of school.

Every ISD 622 family should complete an Application for Educational Benefits (Free or reduced meals) on the LINQ Connect website. The application helps us identify families who need assistance, and also may provide families with discounted rates on athletics and activities fees, and testing fees, among others. Completed applications also allow District 622 to receive funding for classroom programming. This funding helps us stretch our local dollars further.

Families must complete a new form each school year. Also, families who have completed an application and experienced a change in household income or size are encouraged to complete a new one.

The online application process is safe, secure, private, and available anytime, anywhere!

Special Diets

School District 622 recognizes the importance of special dietary needs due to allergy and special diet concerns. In accordance with federal USDA regulations, the Special Diet Statement form must be completed and signed by the parent/guardian as well as the child’s licensed physician before any accommodations are made. A copy of the form must be given to the nutrition services site manager and the school health office.

Parents or guardians are encouraged to visit with the nutrition services site manager to review their child's form and specific needs.
