Food Services

Food Service Mission

All students have access to fresh, nutritious, and locally sourced food every day so they can thrive, grow and learn.   


How to Purchase Meals

To purchase meals students should have money deposited in their school food service account. This can be done through e-Funds, online system with a small processing fee using a checking account routing number or credit card, or with cash or check at school. Salish Coast and Blue Heron students and families pay in the school office, high school students pay food service staff directly. Our school district uses a computerized cashiering system to track deposits and meals purchased through use of a Personalized Identification Number that ensures confidentiality.

Meal Charging

With the passing of House Bill 2610 school procedures have changed starting with the 2018-19 school year.
  • No child will be denied food
  • No alternate meal is to be served
  • No student below the age of 15 can be told they have a negative balance
A low balance reminder and negative balance reminder will go out via text message, phone call, and e-mail-once a week. No adults will be allowed to have a negative balance.

We will make every attempt to make sure families have filled out a free/reduced lunch form
Each household in the district will be mailed a Free/Reduced lunch form at the beginning of the school year or will be given one if they transfer in mid-year. The school district will run a Direct Certification once a month.

The school district will make every effort to collect outstanding food service balances. Please contact food service with any questions or concerns.

Free and Reduced Lunch

You may qualify for free or reduced priced meals, applications are available online, at each school office, and in the school cafeterias. For more information about free and reduced meals eligibility, visit the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Child Nutrition page.

The application may be turned in at the school office or mailed to:
