Food Services

Serving up Healthy and Happy

Food is a big part of everyone’s well-being and Croswell Lexington students need a place to eat where they can connect with others, recharge, and enjoy a sense of happiness in their school. That’s why we serve food kids love to eat and create programs that encourage fun and discovery. Our nutrition services team is passionate about using fresh, nutritious, minimally processed and locally sourced ingredients. We foster a sense of adventure in students through experiential learning activities, designed with healthier students, healthier communities, and a healthier planet in mind. Chartwells is our food service partner, working with Croswell Lexington Schools. Our goal every day is to make sure that Croswell Lexington students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than when they came in!

Important Information for 22-23 School Year!

The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students enrolled at our school can receive a healthy breakfast at NO CHARGE to your household each day. All students must take a full meal in order for it to be at no cost. Unfortunately the federal funds will not cover the charge for a student only taking a milk.

We still need your household to fill out and sign the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application. This information is critical in determining the amount of money that our school receives from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs like Title I A, At-risk (31a), Title II A, E-Rate, etc.

Children need healthy meals to learn. Croswell-Lexington Schools offers healthy meals every school day. Student lunch costs are $2.50 at Elementary and $2.75 at Middle School and High School. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced-price meals. Reduced-price for lunch is $.40. Instructions and Free/Reduced application and Frequently Asked Questions can also be found at croslex.org/foodservice.

More about the Cros-Lex Food Service Program

The Food Service Department has a Point of Sale computer system that requires you to pay for your student's meals ahead of time. Your student will be given an account number that is also their school I.D. Number. You may deposit money into their account at any time. You may send in only one check or any amount of cash for all of your student's accounts. The full amount of the check will be deposited. The money will be divided equally unless you instruct otherwise. Please list all students on the check or on the lunch envelope. This account also gives you certain controls for monitoring their account. You may add certain restrictions i.e.. lunch purchase only, no a la carte snacks or any allergies or milk intolerances etc. Please call Ashley Peters, Director of Dining Services at (810) 679-1526 to have any of these restrictions added to your student's account. You may also request a meal history that will tell you of your student's purchases and deposits. Your student's meal consists of their choice of entrée, one service of fruit, one service of vegetable, or two servings of fruit or two servings of vegetable, grain option and milk.

Check Cashing:
We do not cash checks for anyone at any of the foodservice computers. The full amount of the check will be deposited. We also do not make change for cash.

Charging:
Students may charge up to 2 school lunches.  If no payment has been received after the 2nd meal charge, the student will receive an alternative meal for lunch.  The meal will consist of a peanut butter or ham sandwich, fruit, and a carton of milk. Access the complete charging guidelines document for details.

Skyward Access:
Parents can access their child's account through the Skyward program on the district website.  If you do not have a PIN to access the account, please contact your child's school.

Cros-Lex Food Services Department is run by Chartwells and breakfast and lunch are available for purchase each day.  (There is a free breakfast program available at all buildings.)
