Breakfast and Lunch Menu


Breakfast in the Classroom! NEW!! 

Eating breakfast is a key component to doing well in school. Because all MPS students are eligible to receive free breakfast, we want to increase the percentage of our K-5 students eating breakfast daily.

Therefore, starting on September 3, 2019 we will be serving breakfast in all K-5 classrooms starting at 8:25 am. Breakfast will not be served in the cafeteria before school for the 2019-2020 school year.
