Food & Nutrition Services
Edina Public Schools is committed to supporting a school environment that promotes and protects students' health, well-being and ability to learn by encouraging healthy eating and physical activity.
In partnership with Chartwells, our Food Service department offers a wide variety of healthy choices for all students.
Note: All meals prepared and offered by Chartwells K12 at Edina Public Schools do not contain any pork products and are free from peanuts and tree nuts. (Example: Turkey Ham Sandwich is made with poultry, not pork.)
Free School Meals Program
Beginning on July 1, 2023, Edina joined the Minnesota Free School Meals Program. Under this program, all students are eligible to receive one free breakfast and one free lunch free each school day. To receive the free lunch, students must have three different food groups on their tray, with one of them being at least a ½ cup of fruit or vegetable. You do not need to complete an Application for Educational Benefits to receive this benefit, but we still encourage families to complete it because it is used to determine other benefits and helps the school qualify for educational funds and discounts. If your student wants to receive a second lunch, a second milk, an individual milk without a complete meal, or any other of our a-la-carte options, students will need to pay for these items through money in their lunch account.
Look below to see the prices of a few a-la-carte items:
Second Meal: $4.95
Adult Breakfast: $2.25
Adult Lunch: $4.95
Know your PIN
Students will need to enter their PIN to receive breakfast and lunch meals from the cafeteria.
Funds can be added to a student's meal account through Infinite Campus, which can be accessed via the Portal.
Apply for MDE Educational Benefits
Complete the Educational Benefits application as soon as possible.
This form qualifies students for benefits, including: free ACT testing; participation in College Possible program; college scholarships; some government benefits; and discounts for things such as Comcast internet service, and tickets to various museums.
You should apply if:
- Your family has qualified for meal benefits in the past. -- a new application MUST BE SUBMITTED EACH YEAR.
- Your family applied last year but did not meet income guidelines. The guidelines change a little each year and you may now qualify for benefits.
- Your household income has been affected by unemployment, health crisis, death or other circumstances.
- Note that a new application must be submitted each year -- qualification does not carry over to the next year
