Food Service Overview
The School Nutrition Department is a Federally and State-funded program. We rely on student and staff payments as well as reimbursements from
We try to offer healthy snack and beverage options for students to supplement their meals.If you DO NOT want your child to purchase additional items besides school lunch, please call us at 508-832-7755 and we will make note of this on his/her account.

In the Elementary grades the menus go home with the students monthly and the Auburn News and Cable Station also list the menus for all levels in the school system. At the Elementary, Middle, and High schools we have daily choices in addition to the listed menu.
At the High School and Middle School levels we offer many items, including a salad bar at each school, hot and cold sandwich choices, and pizza each day.
Because each student has an individual account in our POS system, parents may send in a check or cash to deposit in their child’s account. As a student eats each day, the computer automatically deducts one lunch payment from their account. The computer will only deduct one meal a day and if a student were to purchase anything else, it is done on an a la carte basis. You may send prepayment money into each school with your child or send payments to the Food Service Office at 5 West Street, Auburn, MA 01501. We are also able to split a check between siblings within the system if prepayment is sent to our main office.
We discourage charging and at the high school level as we have had a great deal of abuse of this benefit. There will be no charging at the high school this year.
We do allow students to take up to three meals and at that time, if no payment is received, we do offer a basic lunch to them if there is a negative balance (money owed to us) in their account. A basic meal would be a peanut butter sandwich and milk or cheese sandwich if a child has an allergy.
