Welcome to the Food Service Department

Meal Prices & Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

Due to the Michigan Meals Initiative, all meals (breakfast and lunch), regardless of benefit status, will be free for the current school year. A meal consists of a main entree, fruit, vegetables, and milk. Items obtained outside of a "complete meal" are considered a-le-carte and will have a cost.    

Despite the approval for free meals for all public K-12 students in Michigan for the 2024-25 Academic year, Districts MUST still collect free and reduced meal applications. We are required to verify proper eligibility levels for proper meal accounting.   Families can also benefit from completing free and reduced applications, as additional benefits may apply, such as reduced or waived fees for AP exams, college application fees,  and other school costs.  

Applying for Benefits

Applications can be completed beginning July 15th, proceeding with the school year.   If you have a change in your status during the school year that significantly impacts your income,  please consider completing an updated application to ensure you are receiving all services you may be eligible for.  

         Online Applications

Families can apply for Meal Benefits online for all schools in the Marysville Public Schools District MPS Meal Magic portal.  If you need assistance accessing or creating your account, additional reference information about Meal Magic is listed further down this page.  

Once at the portal, please complete the correct application using the following guidelines.
