Food Service Department Webpage

The food services department provides a variety of healthy food choices to ensure a student’s readiness to learn. We are committed to providing high quality, freshly prepared, nutritious food, and personalized service to all students and staff.

Food Service welcomes every student to enjoy FREE & SAFE school meals.

Free & Reduced Breakfast and Lunch

Free and reduced lunches and breakfasts are an important part of our students’ overall positive experience. Study after study shows that it is imperative for students to received healthy, nutritious meals to ensure they learn at their maximum levels. All information regarding the Free & Reduced Lunch process is CONFIDENTIAL.

The Hot Springs School District offers healthy meals to all enrolled children at no additional cost. USDA provides reimbursements for healthy meals and snacks served to children enrolled in the school/center. Please help us comply with the requirements of the Program by completing the attached Application for Free/Reduced-price Meals. By filling out this form, we will be able to determine if we can claim meals served to your child (ren) at the free or reduced-price rate. The packet available here includes an application for free or reduced-price meal benefits, and a set of detailed instructions. It also provides additional information as to who is eligible.

It is also important to the Hot Springs School District that all eligible families complete the F&R application as we receive additional Federal funds depending on our Free & Reduced Lunch percentage. These Federal funds come in the form of grant that allow us to provide additional support services throughout the district.

Please take the time to learn more about the application. If you need additional assistance in completing it, please contact Kelli Rhoe at 745-5766.
