Napoleon Community Schools Food Service Department is proud to provide nutritious meals to our students daily, happy to do our part in helping our students to be fit, healthy and ready to succeed in school. NCS food service programs meet the USDA nutrition guidelines and standards. We are constantly striving to enhance our menus and are very proud of our program. Our school lunch program is a solely funded entity that only receives revenue from meals served. When staff and students choose to purchase lunch from school, it is the equivalent of supporting a small business. We greatly appreciate your support.
We encourage you to contact our Food Service Director, Andrea Haskell with any questions or concerns at email@example.com or by calling 517-905-5711.

All Napoleon Community Schools families are encouraged to complete either the application for Free and Reduced Meals (Napoleon High School families) or the Household Information Report (Eby, NMS or Ackerson families) so our district can qualify for other state and federal programs. We are asking that you please complete and submit your information as soon as possible to ensure that additional funding for our school is available to meet the needs of our students. All information submitted is confidential. Without your assistance our school cannot maximize the use of available State and Federal funds.
These reports are critical in determining the amount of money that our school receives from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs.
These supplemental programs have the potential to offer supports and services for our students including, but not limited to:
Instructional supports (staff, supplies & materials, etc.)
Non-instructional services (counseling, social work, health services, etc.)
Professional Learning for staff
Parent and Community engagement supplies and activities
Thank you for allowing us to feed your children.
A more in depth look at CEP
Napoleon Community Schools is participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Program for the 2022-2023 school year. This program provided through the USDA that allows schools in low income areas to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students in qualifying buildings. See more about the Community Eligibility Provision program and why some NCS students are eligible here.
The GREAT NEWS is that through the CEP program ALL students enrolled at Ezra Eby Elementary, Napoleon Middle School and Ackerson Lake High School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE (FREE) each day of the 2022-2023 school year.
Unfortunately, this option is not available for Napoleon High School students. NHS students will need to pay for lunches or qualify for free or reduced lunches by applying through the Free/ Reduced application here. Paper copies of this application are also available in any school office. We realize this expense may be difficult for some families, therefore lunch prices will remain the same as before the pandemic, $2.75 for a full lunch.
Lunches include: fruit, vegetables, a grain, an entrée, and a milk.
Please note: Under program guidelines meals include a milk. However, when your student brings lunch from home, milk must be purchased for $1.00 each.
Free & Reduced Application
Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals.
A new application must be completed each year.
Applications can be submitted at any time during the year as the need arises.
Applications are NOT transferrable between schools.
Apply online or pick up a paper copy in any of our school offices.
