Food Service

Vicksburg Community Schools is excited to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students for the 2023-2024 school year thanks to the Michigan Healthy School Meals Program! 

No action is needed for the free breakfast and lunch this year. However, if students would like to purchase à la carte items they will be able to do so as long as they have money in their food service account. Parents can view their balances, add money and set up email alerts in the Family Portal. Choose “my account” to add funds. 

Even though meals will be provided for free, it's important for families to continue sharing household income information in order for our schools to receive full access to federal and state funding for educational programs that our students are entitled to. Free and reduced meal applications are used to determine funding for several VCS programs. Every application that is not submitted means lost educational programs and resources for our students.

Access School Lunch Accounts

By clicking the link above, parents and guardians can enter the Family Portal where they can view student lunch activity, make credit card deposits and check student balances.

First time users will have to create an account. You will need the following information handy in order to access information about your student: Student ID Number and Student Birth Date. Note: If the student ID number begins with a ZERO, delete that zero.

Also in the Family Portal is the 2023-2024 free and reduced price meal application. By filling out the current application, this will help ensure a smooth transition for the new school year. It's a brief application that is needed every new school year.

Note: Free and reduced meal applications are used to determine funding for several VCS programs.
