My students are hybrid. Can I get meals for days they are not in school?

How do I place orders for my virtual/remote learning student?

Orders must be placed at by 10 pm the day before you are picking up. Be sure to place a separate order for each child and use the “Virtual & Remote Learning” menu.

Where do we pick up meals?

What time can I pick up meals?

How do I get meals for the weekend?

Weekend meals do not need to be preordered. Come during any pick up time on Friday to receive meals for Saturday and Sunday.

If my student is in school on Monday, can I pick up meals on Monday night for them for Tuesday?

No, not if they are getting meals in school on Monday. We can only allocate one breakfast and one lunch per student per day.

Do I need to complete the Free and Reduced application to receive free meals?

No, all students will receive free breakfast and lunch either way. We are simply asking that those who would normally qualify for free or reduced price meals continue to complete applications because this program can be suspended at any time and we do not want any gaps in benefits. Schools also rely on free and reduced data for additional government funding.

How do I log in to Nutrislice?

Nutrislice is not linked to MiStar. You must create your own account using an email address and password of your choosing during the checkout process.

I have a 3 year old in my house who is not in school; can they receive free meals too?

Yes, ANY child 18 and under in the household (or 26 and under for those with disabilities) can receive free breakfast and lunch daily. Just place a separate order for that child along with the orders for your other children.

Can I place advanced orders?

Yes, orders can be placed for a week at a time but still must be picked up daily.

We would not normally qualify for free meals. Are we taking from others if we accept the meals?

Not at all! In fact, you are helping the school district because the district receives federal reimbursements for each meal served.
