Hot Lunch Program/ Free-Reduced Meals

Posted Date: 05/27/2020


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We are excited to be beginning our third year with OPAA! The Hudson School Lunch Program is continuously making changes and improvements.   The Hudson School District would like every child to have a healthy learning environment which includes a healthy, good-for-you lunch. Menus will have food choices from every food group.   Breading and sandwiches will be made from whole grains.  We would like to challenge students to try new things.  Please encourage your student to try something new!

Hudson School has a web based lunch accounting system. The system is designed for families to deposit any amount of money into their family account by bringing the money to the school or depositing on-line via our school website ( Each student in that family will draw from that one family account.  If you do not want your student to purchase ala carte items and/or seconds, please contact the Central Office. 

Lunch and breakfast charges per day are as follows:

K-4 Lunch $3.05

5-12 Lunch $3.20

K-12 Reduced Lunch $  .40

Adult Lunch $3.85

K-12 Breakfast $2.05

K-12 Reduced Breakfast $  .30

Adult Breakfast $2.30

Extra Milk $  .30

Notices are emailed weekly for lunch account balances indicating the family lunch account needs replenishing. A detailed explanation of your account (current year only) may be obtained by contacting the school.  School policy states when a student lunch account reaches a negative amount, extras, doubles and ala carte will not be available until  money has been deposited.  If your student’s lunch account was negative at the end of the 2019-2020 school year, it will need to be brought up to a positive balance at the beginning of the school year.

Finally I would remind you to utilize our school meal menu which is accessible from the front page of the school website. Our menus provide nutritional information on the items served along with a picture of the food being served. There is even a place where you can rate the meal, which is very valuable for our nutrition staff when planning menus.

Within the 2020-2021 School Topics, are the guidelines and application forms for free and reduced price meals.  If you wish to apply, please complete the application form.  The application is also available online within our school registration page.  Free/Reduced students who want just a carton of milk when bringing in cold lunch or additional milk with their hot lunch will need to put money in their lunch account for that item.
