FREE Breakfast and Lunch

Dear Parents & Guardians,

What an exciting 2020-2021 school year!  We are happy to see your wonderful kids and have the opportunity to help them become successful. We are offering FREE breakfast and lunch to ALL children in the Monett community! Yes, I said FREE!! This program is for in session, virtual students, and anyone under 18 years old. 

The Waiver from the Department of Health and USDA started on September 1st and will continue through the end of the semester unless funds are depleted earlier. If your child paid for a meal from September 1st through September 9th, the money will be put back into their account. 

Students in MIS, MMS, and MHS have the option to grab ala carte items.  Ala carte items and second entrees are considered extra items and continue to require payment. Students participating in the after school programs receive FREE supper.

We love having the opportunity to serve your kids with new menu items and many options for students to choose from. We highly encourage students to try our new food options and eat more in the cafeteria. 

Students enrolled in seated classes do not need to register to receive meals. Students enrolled in virtual learning or are being educated at home must register for FREE meals HERE.

Thank you for being part of the Monett R-1 School District!
