2023/2024 Lunch Menu
Delano Public Schools provides healthy nutritious breakfasts and lunches to students, faculty and staff. The district uses My School Menus, an interactive online menu tool that makes it easy for people to access school breakfast and lunch menus and nutritional values, by the day, by the school, for the entire school year. 

The My School Menus platform makes it easier for families and students to learn specifically what will be served in the morning and in the afternoon and the nutritional value of every item the food service program offers.

Printing a menu
My School Menu has a  feature which allows visitors to print a menu. Please note, after October 2023, the old format of posting the menu will be phased out and will no longer be available. October Lunch Menu.

2) Click on “Food Service”

3) Click on “Make Online Payment”

4) If this is the first time making a payment, you will need to create an account by filling in the information under “New Customer.”

We're proud of our school food service program. The food service staff provides high quality, nutritious meals to students. The meals are planned according to federal guidelines. We participate in the "OFFER VS SERVE" plan. With that plan, students may select a minimum of 3 out of 5 items at lunch. This option provides students an opportunity to choose the food for their meal and helps to reduce waste.


Free and reduced priced meals are available for families who qualify. Families who may qualify are encouraged to complete a confidential application. The information on the application is used for determining meal benefits. Applications are available in each school office or from the Food Service Office located in the district office. Phone number is 763-972-3365 Ext. 1951.


Meal payments may be made in each school and in the district office. We have "family" accounts so you only need to write one check for all students. Payments must be made by 10 a.m. each day to be recorded by lunchtime. A confidential PIN number accesses the student's account. The meal account is debited each time a purchase is made. You may not make a purchase if your account is more than negative $5.
