Welcome to Glenwood Community Schools
2018 - 2019 Food Service Program

Glenwood Community School District provides a computerized system that allows participants to deposit money into a Food Service account from which they may draw to purchase lunch, breakfast, and ala carte items using a Personal Identification Number (PIN). The Food Services Program will issue each student and school staff a PIN number to use when purchasing meals or other food items. Students are assigned a PIN when they start school and will keep the same PIN through graduation, unless there is a reason to change the number. Please deposit money into your student's account at registration, when the account is low, or use online. Money left in accounts at the end of the year will stay in your student's account unless we receive a written request for a refund from the parent or guardian.

Food Services must collect money for accounts in the early part of the school day. Due to time constraints during the lunch service time, we cannot accept money for deposit in the lunch line. Meals must be paid for in advance; therefore, money needs to be put into the account before purchasing can begin.

Reminder notes will be printed at Northeast Elementary and West Elementary schools. Please contact your student's teacher if you do not receive the reminder notes. Reminders start when an account reaches $10.00. Middle School and High School students are told in the line what their balance is. We do not send reminders home at this age level. If it becomes necessary for an account to go negative please call your schools foodservice clerk or the food service office to discuss an EMERGENCY SITUATION ONLY. Otherwise students will be expected to bring a cold lunch and to eat breakfast at home until the situation can be resolved. There will be no purchasing ala carte items or extra milks if an account is negative.

We now offer so parents can monitor their child's meal account balance and transactions online and set up a payment reminder email for FREE. Also, parents may make pre-payments into their child's account anytime using Visa or MasterCard (credit or debit). The convenience fee of $3.00 is charged by the school district. The fee is designed to cover or offset the normal costs of processing credit card transactions and other costs associated with maintaining a credit card merchant account. If you wish to use this service, you may sign up at

The Food Service Clerk at your child's school or can provide you with a printout of your student's account. It will show when money was deposited, when money was deducted, and what was purchased from the account. Parents need to notify the clerk if they would like to "block" a student from receiving breakfast or ala carte items, or put spending limits on their account. If you have additional questions about your food service account, contact the clerk between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. or call the food service office at 712-527-5029.

Students approved for FREE meals may eat both breakfast and lunch at no cost. Students approved for REDUCED priced meals may purchase breakfast at a cost of $.30 and lunch at a cost of $.40 daily. An Iowa Eligibility Application must be filled out (renewed) each school year. You can fill out an application online at or you can locate this application on the school website Each building office will have a printed copy for you to pick up if preferred. Free, reduced, and full paying students may purchase milk for $.40 to go with a sack lunch, but this is not part of the Free and Reduced meals program. There must be money in the account to purchase milk for a sack lunch. We ask that parents not send bottled/canned soda with sack lunches.

We encourage family members to come share lunch with the students. We request that guests coming to eat with their student notify the kitchen before 9:00 a.m. Parents may deduct the cost of their meal from their student's account or bring correct change to pay in cash.
