NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM
Marietta City Schools participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast program. Some students may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals. Applications are available in each office and on the Food Services section on the website.
Marietta City Schools follows the Offer versus Serve policy sponsored by the USDA. Offer vs. Serve is intended to decrease waste and costs by allowing students to refuse up to two components in a lunch and one component in a breakfast. The lunch components consist of a meat/meat alternative (cheese, beans or yogurt), grain (bread, rice, or noodles), vegetable, fruit, and milk. The breakfast components consist of an entrée, fruit/juice and milk. All students are required to take a fruit or vegetable when buying a lunch.
NATIONAL SCHOOL BREAKFAST PROGRAM
Currently we offer breakfast to all students at Marietta City School students. Breakfast is free to all elementary school students. A paid breakfast is $1.25 at Marietta Middle School and Marietta High School. A second breakfast cost is $1.50. A reduced price for breakfast, for those who qualify is $.30 and is free to all who qualify for free lunches.
