SPS Meals

SPS Culinary Services provides breakfast and lunch daily in the Arbor Heights lunchroom


Breakfast and lunch menus by month are available on SPS Culinary Services. No pork or peanut products are used in SPS-provided meals.

Paying for Meals

If your child plans to eat breakfast or lunch at school daily (or occasionally), you can load your child’s meal account with a credit/debit card online.

Free & Reduced-Priced Meals

Families may submit a confidential application to receive Free and Reduced-priced mealsWe encourage everyone to apply as approval for the program increases family access to other benefits and federal dollars to help support programs like tutoring for some in SPS.

Bringing a Lunch from Home

Students can also choose to bring a lunch from home. Please consider packing lunch in an eco-friendly bento box to minimize packaging. Students must also be able to manage all packaging in their lunch.

If a student has a special diet, please inform their teacher and ensure the student is aware and can manage all aspects of the diet independently. Teachers may not heat special student meals in microwaves or store lunches anywhere but in student backpacks.
