Food Services

The Child Nutrition Program provides one-fourth (for breakfast) and one-third (for lunch) of the daily nutritional requirements for school children. The PCSD 25 Food Services Program operates as a nonprofit, self-supporting service. The program is funded from the sale of all meals, á la carte items, and catering. The United States Department of Agriculture provides reimbursements for some costs for student’s school meals, meals served to children through the Summer Food Program, and the After-Schools Snack Program. Secondary schools have kitchens on location. Elementary schools and the Lincoln Early Childhood Center receive daily deliveries from the district's Central Kitchen, but prepare all meals on site.

Will meals be provided free of charge to all learners during the 2022-2023 school year?
No. The USDA has suspended the waiver that allowed PCSD 25 to provide free meals to all learners during the pandemic. That's why it's vital for parents/guardians to fill out a free and reduced meal application as soon as possible. 

Completing the Online Free & Reduced Meals Application helps in many areas beyond offering free or reduced meals. Just one form per household ensures continued funding to support all PCSD 25 learners.

Summer Food Service Program FAQs

Questions Answers
What is the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)? Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school. Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. SFSP provides an opportunity to continue a child's physical and social development while providing nutritious meals during long vacation periods from school. It helps children return to school ready to learn.

All children 18 and younger may receive free meals through SFSP, regardless of income. Meals are also available to persons with disabilities, over age 18, who participate in school programs for people who are mentally or physically disabled.
How long as the SFSP been in existence? SFSP was first created as part of a larger pilot program in 1968. It became a separate program in 1975. More than 2.28 million children participated at almost 39,000 sites in the summer of 2012.

The Pocatello/Chubbuck School District has operated a successful Summer Food Service Program for 20 years, since 2001.​
