Welcome to the Marysville School District Child Nutritional Services. We are located at the Service Center (4220 80th ST NE). Our hours are 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday (Service Center hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). If you have a free & reduced meal application to drop off after hours, please use the lock box located to the right of the main doors if the Service Center is closed. If you have any questions, please call or email Child Nutrition Services. Payments for your students' meals can be made online via the "pay online" link to the left, at the Service Center or at your students' school.
Our menus are nutritionally analyzed to provide the appropriate levels of calories, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, iron, and percentages of fat and saturated fat. A school lunch consists of an entrée, side dishes and milk. Students are required to take a minimum of an entrée and at least one other food item. If the student does not take the minimum meal requirements, the lunch is considered “ala carte”. We encourage students to make healthy food choices. Each school has an Offering Bar filled with an assortment of salads, fruits and vegetables. The Offering Bar is self-service to allow students to take larger portions of their favorite fruits and vegetables.
We believe that breakfast is a vital part of a child’s day. Studies have shown a direct link between eating breakfast and a child’s ability to learn. Students who eat breakfast are able to perform better in school. Breakfast is available each morning at all of the Marysville Schools. Students who qualify for free or reduced price lunches automatically qualify for free breakfasts.
Payments for student meals can be made by clicking on "pay online" to the left of this page, in person at the Service Center (located on 80th ST NE), or at your students' school. We are unable to accept payments over the phone.
A new application is required to be filled out every school year in order to apply/receive Free or Reduced Meal benefits.
