This year McMinnville School District will again participate in the federally funded Community Eligibility Provision, which allows us to serve every child one breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE. All schools are participating. All children are eligible and no forms are required.

The success of this program is dependent upon healthy participation. We encourage all families to take advantages of this opportunity. Save time and money with the assurance that your child is receiving a healthy lunch and breakfast!

Letters are mailed to each family in early August describing this provision.

Forms requesting waivers for school fees are now available at each school office. Eligibility letters for Comcast are no longer available from our Department.

Food providers

McMinnville School District supports the farm to school initiative.

McMinnville schools focus on providing a nutritious menu. When possible, food is purchased locally.

Stephens Farm, located between Dayton and Salem, provides farm-fresh fruits and vegetables in season.


Oregon Harvest for Schools

McMinnville School District spotlights a different local fruit or vegetable every month of the school year, using resources available from the Oregon Harvest for Schools program. We know that the cafeteria can be an extension of the classroom, where students learn the healthy habits necessary for academic readiness and success. Buying local foods is just another way that our district can support local farms and our local economy. Plus, fresher food just tastes better.
