Pricing for any guest joining a student are $1.70 for breakfast and $3.55 for lunch. Costs are higher than a student meal as the School Nutrition Program does not receive any federal/state reimbursement for these meals.

A la carte items are available at the Middle School and High School level. These items are priced the same for all students and may only be purchased when funds are available in the meal account. Individual item prices are listed on the links listed below.

If you are having problems paying for school meals, please contact us. We will make every attempt to work out a payment plan or help you apply for assistance.

In keeping with Linn-Mar’s collection recovery plan, meal accounts carrying a negative balance of $50.00, for over 90 days, will be turned over to eTech Transaction Solutions for collections.

Checks returned due to nonsufficient funds will be re-presented electronically and charged a collection fee. The amount of the check will be debited from the family meal account which may create a negative meal account balance. Upon notification that the check has been cleared with eTech, the meal account will be credited for the amount of the check


ID Cards

Students must present a current ID card to make purchases at the high school and middle school. Cards are provided free of charge at the beginning of each school year. In the event a card is lost, replacement cards may be purchased for a fee of $5.00 (Grades 6-8) and $6.00 (Grades 9-12.)

Students eligible for free or reduced meals are entitled to three replacement cards at no cost (per USDA regulations.) If a 4th replacement card is necessary, the regular cost applies.
