Food Service Info for Parents

Meal Account Information

Meal accounts must have money in the account in order for the student to use it.  A $5 balance is the minimum. We encourage parents/guardians to pay in advance of the first day of school.

Payments may be sent to:

ISD #2174-Food Service Office

PO Box 610

Pine River, Mn 56474

Payments can be made online through Infinite Campus. Payments can also be sent with the individual student.  Be sure to include the student’s name.  Make checks payable to ISD #2174.  

Parents & Students are notified daily in if their balance is getting low. Should the account reach a negative balance, the student will be offered a Grab & Go Sandwich option until such time the account is brought to a positive balance.

Offer vs. Serve

Per government regulations, PRB incorporates a feature called Offer vs. Serve.  This program requires the student to select a minimum of 3 of 5 lunch menu items or 3 of 4 breakfast menu items.

The portions of all the food items will be the same and the price of the meal will not be lowered when taking less than the entire meal.

Allergies & Intolerances

State law specifies the responsibility of a school to provide a lactose-free milk with a written request from a parent/guardian.  The state does not allow the district to make any other substitutions, such as juice to lactose intolerant students.

Students with food allergies need to provide a signed “Special Diet Statement” annually to receive food substitutions.
