On March 17, 2023, Governor Walz signed the MN Free School Meals bill into law. The MN Free School Meals Program is a permanent program that provides state reimbursement to schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program so that students can have one breakfast and one lunch at no cost at school.
Primary and Intermediate School: $0.00
Middle School: $0.00
High School: $0.00
Free and Reduced Cost: $0.00
Families are encouraged to complete an Application for Educational Benefits if they have not done so already. Qualifying for benefits means free lunches, reduced activity, athletic, and other district fees. Completing the application also helps the school with crucial educational funds that improve the learning environment and overall educational experience of our students, saving taxpayer money.
We look forward to providing nutritious meals for your students!

Offer vs Serve
Becker Schools utilizes the "Offer verses Serve" method for meal service. This provision allows children to choose food items that are offered rather than requiring them to take all foods listed on the menu. Students must choose at least three of the five food categories (milk, meat/meat alternative, vegetable, fruit, grain /bread.) Students are required to select a minimum of a 1/2 cup fruit or vegetable with each meal. Using this method reduces unnecessary food waste, acknowledges students' independent nature and ability to choose, and allows students to try new food items without having to take the entire portion.
It has been proven that parents who discuss food choices and encourage children to eat a variety of foods have a positive impact on a child's nutrient intake.
