Food and Nutrition Services

Online payments for school meals can be made using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  Each transaction results in a $2.00 fee.
Grinnell-Newburg Schools strives to serve the best quality meals to its students and staff, promoting healthy and nutritious food options in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

Eat Breakfast at School!!

Breakfast is served at each building before school starts!! School breakfast will energize your child’s day and provide them with a healthy start. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class, and has plenty of vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.

Breakfast at school is affordable. If you qualify for free and reduced price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork.

The Child Nutrition Program offers nutritious breakfasts and lunches at every school building. Proper nutrition is fundamental for the success of academic programs. Our meals meet the new USDA Nutrition Standards, which requires the following:
  • Age-appropriate calorie limits
  • Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving)
  • A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
  • Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
  • More whole grains
  • Less sodium
The new requirements build on the work we have already been doing to provide more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthier main dishes in our cafeteria. Now is a great time for students to choose school lunch! 
Lunch Accounts: Online Payments

Online payments for school meals can be made using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  Each transaction results in a $2.00 fee.

Through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal, parents can see their child's balance, view purchase history and sign up for email notifications should balances become low. Although a great option for parents, the online system is not required, and parents may still send money with students for lunch and breakfast purchases.
