MCS Lunch Program

Moscow Charter School serves FDA approved hot lunches. Lunch is prepared at an offsite kitchen and transported to MCS; orders are placed each morning by 9:00 am. Parents are responsible to provide a lunch for their child in the event that the child forgets to order or arrives at school after orders have been placed without making prior arrangements. Parents are welcome to join their student for lunch! Please let us know in advance if you would like to purchase a lunch.

At MCS, we contract with the MSD to purchase our school lunches. The USDA has approved the MSD application to resume the "Covid Feeding" program (SSO), which means they will continue to provide any child between the ages of 1 and 18, regardless of program eligibility, a school meal free of charge. This will be in effect thru June 2021.

Students who physically attend school on a given day will be served their meal on campus. If your cohort group is not in person or you are an online only student, meals will be available for pickup at various locations. These are listed under the Bus Route Pick Up Locations below. Meals picked up at these pickup locations will contain both lunch and breakfast for the next morning.  If you are in person and would like to have breakfast for the next day, you will need to go to one of these pick up locations and pick up a meal. We do not serve breakfast at our school so we are unable to provide breakfast for your child. Please note that their capacity to produce and distribute meals is limited and there may be days when they run out.

For students in attendance on cohort A or B days: On the days your student is in school, the order process will be the same as it has been in the past. Your student will have the option of the Hot menu item or Choice (Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich). Your student will place their order in the morning with their teacher. We must submit all orders to the MSD by 9am. If your student will be arriving late, please notify Caitlin before 9am to make sure that we are able to order a meal for your child or we can not guarantee a meal will be available at the school for your child on these days. 

Once the program is no longer available students who do not qualify for the Free and Reduced lunch program will be charged for lunch and milk at the rates listed above. Please make sure you apply for the program if you want to use it after the Covid Feeding program ends.

*January 8, 2020 update -- School Bus Meals Route Changes for Wednesdays 

Until further notice, when we have “A” days on Mondays and Tuesdays, and “B” days on Thursdays and Fridays, the Indian Hills and the Polk Extension/Campus meals routes will not run on Wednesdays.  The drivers of these routes are needed to get students to and from school for the special Wednesday sessions. 

However, all meals routes will run on Wednesdays during the weeks when an “A” or “B” day happens on a Wednesday due to a holiday or other “no school day” occurring on a Monday or a Friday.  This means that the Indian Hills and Polk Extension Campus Routes will run on Wednesdays on the following dates:

January 20
January 27
February 3
February 17
April 7
June 2

Except for scheduled non-school days (holidays, teacher work days or professional development), meals can still be picked up “curbside” every weekday at Lena Whitmore School, 110 S. Blaine, from 11 a.m. until noon.
