Free and Reduced Priced Meal Applications
are now located on the Parent Portal
under "more", "meal benefits", and "click here." Parents who are first time users of the portal may obtain their access codes by visiting their student's school office. There is a computer kiosk available in the Food Service office for those who have trouble accessing or filling out the application. Adjusted meal prices start the day after your application is processed. Meals purchased prior to processing are fully paid prices.
Angel Fund: The Angel Fund provides hot meals for students who have no money regardless of the reason. It is mainly funded through generous donations of the remaining money in closed meal accounts, or by donations made from staff and parents. When a student receives an Angel Meal, a note will be sent home with the child and an email sent from the Food Service Office. If at all possible, we ask that the meal charge be paid back to the Angel Fund so money remains available for other students' use. Donations can be made in the Food Service office located in the Middle School from 6:30am -2:00pm, or by sending funds designated Angel Fund with your student to give to the cashier.
Transfer Money / Refunds: Due to the large number of students in the district, Food Service will not transfer money from account to account unless the student is leaving the district. If the student is continuing and has money on his/her account that they will not be using, the parent may request a refund by supplying a self-addressed stamped envelope and a written request to: Food Service Department ~ 691 Tower Rd ~ Box Elder, SD 57719. Please note, money left in the account at the end of the school year will follow your student to the next grade as long as they continue at Douglas School District.
