Welcome to Food Service

  • Healthy minds are fueled by healthy foods! Students perform better in the classroom, are more focused and more active when they eat meals that are well-balanced and nutritious. To this end, the Phoenix Central School District Food Service Department offers breakfast and lunch for students in kindergarten through 12th grade and works diligently to keep meal prices affordable. The 2020-21 meal prices are $1.60 for breakfast (at all schools), $2.75 for lunch at Michael A. Maroun Elementary, $2.80 for lunch at Emerson J. Dillon Middle School and John C. Birdlebough High School. Checks may be written out to “Phoenix CSD Food Service Dept.” Adult lunch prices are $4.25. On average, the district serves more than 237,000 healthy meals each school year.
