Food Services in the Manasquan School District
The Manasquan School District works with Culinary Classics (a contracted food service provider) to provide meals for district students. Menus and lunch forms can be found below.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Lunch menus for both Manasquan High School and Manasquan Elementary School are available on the Culinary Classics Menu page.
Student Cafeteria Accounts
New for 2022-23: The Manasquan School District now uses PaySchools for parents to add funds to their child's cafeteria account. This is now the same system used for paying other fines and fees to the District. In order to add or manage funds in your child's cafeteria account, you must create a PaySchools account and link to your child using their Manasquan student ID number. All balances from the prior school year and the prior payment system have been automatically transferred to your child's account in PaySchools.
Once you have a PaySchools account and have linked your child, their Cafeteria balance will display on your online dashboard. Funds can then also be added from this screen using a credit/debit card or an ACH transfer.
The fees for adding lunch funds online are $1.95 per ACH transaction, $1.95 per credit card transaction under $50.00, or 3.9% per credit card transactions over $50.00.
For more information on PaySchools and online payments in the Manasquan School district, see our Online Payments information page.
Free and Reduced Lunch
The federal program funding free lunch for all students that has been in place over the last two school years has expired. All students who do not qualify for free lunch based on household income will be charged for lunch beginning on September 8. For information regarding our rates and menus, visit our Food Services page. If you believe you may qualify for free lunch benefits, or have qualified for free lunch benefits in the past, you must fill out the free lunch application form available in the Genesis Parent Portal under the Forms tab. Any student who qualified for free lunch during the 2019-2020, 2020-2021, or 2021-2022 school year will continue these benefits during a grace period expiring October 18, after which any student without an up-to-date free lunch application will be charged for their food.
The application for free and reduced lunch services is available in our Parent Portal. If you have any questions regarding food services or the free and reduced lunch application, please contact Sandi Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
