We strive to provide students with access to a wide assortment of foods that are both appealing and nutritious. Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at our schools are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
School lunches are $2.75 for full pay students, .40 for reduced students and $3.50 for staff. Free and reduced meals are available to those families that qualify; qualification is based on income and family size. Applications are available online, at school offices and the cafeteria.
Free & Reduced Applications
2017-2018 Free and Reduced applications are now available online.
The online application process can take less than 3 minutes and approval can take place in just a few hours compared with a paper application which can take up to 10 days to process. Although, the online process is much faster we still legally have 10 business days to process applications.
**It is not necessary to fill out a paper application if you have completed the online process.
How do I pay for meals?
There are a number of ways in which meals can be paid for:
1. Prepay by writing a check made out to Morenci Schools.
2. Prepay with cash at the Fairbanks Cafeteria.
If you send a payment to school with your child please place it in an envelope labeled Lunch Money with your child's name on the front.
