Lunches cost $6.00 per day. Late lunches are $7.50 ~ with a 3% credit card processing fee per order.
You may opt to pay with a check to avoid the 3% fee. Write a check payable to LCMSD for the amount you choose and deliver it to the District Office (230 Doherty Dr. Larkspur). When the check is received, you will receive notification that the credit is on your account and you can order lunches.
What if my student forgets his/her lunch?
If your child receives a LunchMaster emergency lunch because they do not have a lunch ordered the cost is $7.50 charged to your credit card by LunchMaster.
If the LunchMaster emergency lunches run out OR if your child is not registered with The LunchMaster, your child can receive a healthy snack from the school office, the cost is $3.00 payable to Larkspur-Corte Madera School District. (you will be billed).
Do meals served follow certain nutritional regulations?
Our District participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and receives funding for compliant meals served to students. In order to receive funding, our District must follow strict requirements on portion sizes including specifications for Saturated Fat, Trans Fat, Calories and Sodium. In addition, lunches served each day must include required amounts of protein, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and milk. A variety of vegetables from certain subgroups including dark green leafy, red/orange, and legumes (dried peas and beans) are also required each week.
If my child is still still hungry, are seconds available?
No. The District operates under the Offer versus Serve model. Students will be served once and should request enough food while receiving their allowable portions of meat/meat alternative, grains, vegetables and/or fruits, and milk. Students may request larger portions of fruits and vegetables if quantities are available.
