Use School Cafe for All Foods And Nutrition, Free and Reduced Meals System

We encourage families to use School Café  to manage your child’s school lunch account and stay connected to MMSD School Nutrition.

Creating an account is quick and easy and offers many benefits:

  • Apply for Free or Reduced-Price Meals
  • View School Menus containing nutritional information and allergy warning
  • Provide feedback by rating menu items
  • Make Payments
  • View Purchase History
  • Receive Low Balance Alerts

To create an account, you will need your student’s school ID number. Please reach out to your school for this information if you are unable to locate it.

Create an account

If you receive notification on your student's meal balance, please read through carefully and act as necessary. You do not need to have a SchoolCafe account for your student to be served at school. MMSD Board Policy is to serve meals to students at school regardless of negative balance in order to support equitable access to full, nutritious meals during the school day in support of learning and good health. Please address any questions to food@madison.k12.wi.us. Thank you!

MMSD Food and Nutrition believes that good nutrition is a key to learning. Last year, we proudly served more than 1.5 million meals to our students.
