The Food Service Department provides balanced breakfast and lunch to all the Districts' students.
A choice of 1% low fat white and chocolate milk is offered each day with meals. School lunch consists of five components: meat/meat alternate, fruit, vegetable, bread, and milk. Many times our main entree consists of two components. Menus are subject to change due to availability of products.

As you know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As your child’s educational facility, we know that hungry children cannot learn. As the first steps toward addressing this issue, we serve breakfast at all Mason Public Schools. Breakfast is served before school at different locations in each building. A school breakfast is made up of three components, which are defined as one serving of fruit, one serving of milk and one equivalent grain/bread. Hot and cold breakfast served throughout the week.
All students will receive one breakfast per day.
