Farm to School Program
"Eat to Learn-Learn to Eat." We look at our kitchens and cafeteria as classrooms. Good health is important for learning and good eating habits are imperative to good health.
Student Lunch Accounts
Family lunch accounts are created and accessed only by members of that family. Accounts are activated once money is deposited, online via Parent Portal. Students receive a five-digit number which is entered into the lunch-line computers. The computer will deduct the fee from the family lunch account.
Students will not be eligible to participate in the lunch program if the account balance goes to $0. Please refer to Dassel-Cokato Public Schools ISD #466 - 543 Unpaid Meal Charges Policy.
Free and Reduced Lunch Program
Only the first meal of each day qualifies for free and reduced treatment, for those approved for the program. Second meals are charged at the regular price to the parents. Legislation enacted by the state provides students who qualify for reduced-price lunches, to also receive breakfast at no charge. For more information about free or reduced meals, please call the district office at 320-286-4100 ext.1013.
