Breakfast & Lunch Menus

Menus are published monthly by Public Relations and are available online on the tab to the left or by clicking here. A limited supply are printed and will be made available at each school site or at the District Administration Center at 6330 W. Thunderbird Road, Glendale.

Peoria School District takes part in the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Summer Feeding Program and Commodity Food Program. We offer a variety of nutritious food choices including a fruit and vegetable bar where student can choose from a minimum of 5 different healthy options. We also offer at least 1 vegetarian option each day. Menus are analyzed to ensure nutritional content is consistent with the regulations set forth by the United States Department of Agriculture.

All schools utilize the offer vs. serve meal service. This means that all students are offered five different food groups, but are allowed to decline groups.Government and State regulations require students to take ½ cup of fruits and/or vegetable as part of their meal; however, they are no longer required to take milk.

Milk may be purchased from the lunch line even if the student is not getting lunch from the cafeteria. Students can purchase milk using their account or cash.

Additional a la carte items may be offered during the lunch period to 6th graders through 12th graders. If you do not wish for your student to purchase these additional items with their accounts, you can set restrictions through mylunchmoney.com. If you do not use mylunchmoney.com to manage your student account, you can call the cafeteria manager or call the Food & Nutrition office at 623-487-5185.
