Food Services


District 63 is committed to providing healthy food options that meet the USDA nutrition standards for school lunch and breakfast programs. Meals also meet the requirements of the USDA National School Lunch Program. District 63 partners with Arbor Management, Inc. to provide nutritious food options for our students at breakfast and lunch. 

Paying for Meals The easiest way to pay for meals is online using your child's PushCoin account.  If you don't have an account, see instructions on how to set one up.  Parents can also submit payment to the school office – where it will be applied to the student’s account.
