Middle School Lunch

SCHOOL LUNCH BALANCES: With the schools closed prior to the end of the 2019-20 school year, parents will have money remaining on unused school lunches. Depending on whether the student is currently in eighth-grade or a student who will be returning to a District 64 school in the fall, parents have several options regarding their lunch balances. Please review the information on this PDF and let us know your decision regarding your school lunch balance.

Middle school students in grades 6-8 remain at school during their scheduled lunch period.

District 64 partners with Quest Food Management Services to provide a high quality lunch program for students in grades 1-8. District 64 also conducts a food composting program in the lunch rooms as part of its District-wide sustainability initiatives.
