  • Our food service team is committed to serving the students of our district healthy, nutritious and delicious food.  We adhere to the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs' guidelines for portion sizes, fat and sodium content and nutrient value of the meals that are served.  We server all Whole Grain and Whole Grain Rich Products, and reduced and low fat ingredients are used whenever possible.  Fresh fruits and vegetables are available daily as well as 1% low fat and fat free milk choices.
  • Our school uses a computer based point of sale program that works like an internal debit system for the students.  Funds can be placed on your child's account and meal purchases are deducted when your child receives a meal from our cafeteria. 
  • Payment is to be made in advance.  Accounts must have funds available for meal purchases.  Invoices will be sent home when an account is over due or upon request.  If you would like to know your child's account balance or need a statement or printed menu, please just call or send us a note.  Statements can also be emailed to you.  Just send an email- include your Child's Name, to:  mlinnington@cmcspecialservices.org
  • Please be sure your payment is identified with your child’s full name, especially if sending cash.   
  • Checks can be made payable to:  CMCSSSD
  • OVERDUE ACCOUNT:  If an account is overdue and you have not contacted us about making payment, a cheese sandwich with milk will be provided.
  • FREE AND REDUCED MEALS APPLICATION:   Applications can be updated if your circumstances or income change during the school year.  A downloaded application is available at the top of this page under "Menus & Application".  Please contact us if you have questions or need a paper application sent home to you.
  • Offer versus Serve Meal Program:  Our schools have adopted an offer versus serve policy.  In order for a meal to be considered a full, reimbursable meal by USDA standards students must include a minimum amount of food choices on their trays.  Each day students will be offered at least four food items at breakfast and may decline one if they choose, but can take all four.  At Lunch they will be offered at least five food items, and they can decline two if they choose, but can take all five.  Our cafeteria staff are trained to provide correct portion sizes and assist students in choosing the minimum requirements while encouraging students to take all components to complete their meal with the best nutrition!

If you have any questions regarding account balances, the free and reduced meals application or any food service related issue please call us at 609-465-2720 ext. 6619 or email: mlinnington@cmcspecialservices.org

Whole Grains

Tips to Help You Eat More Whole Grain

To eat more whole grains, substitute a whole-grain product for a refined product – such as eating whole-wheat bread instead of white bread or brown rice instead of white rice. It’s important to substitute the whole-grain product, rather than adding it to the non-whole grain product.

For a change, try brown rice or whole-wheat pasta. Try brown rice stuffing in baked green peppers or tomatoes and whole-wheat macaroni in macaroni and cheese.

Use whole grains in mixed dishes, such as barley in vegetable soup or stews and bulgur wheat in casserole or stir-fries.

Create a whole grain pilaf with a mixture of barley, wild rice, brown rice, broth and spices- stir in toasted nuts or chopped dried fruit.

Experiment by substituting whole wheat or oat flour for up to half of the flour in pancake, waffle, muffin or other flour-based recipes. They may need a bit more leavening.

Use whole-grain bread or cracker crumbs in meatloaf.

Try rolled oats or a crushed, unsweetened whole grain cereal as breading for baked chicken, fish, veal cutlets, or eggplant parmesan.

Try an unsweetened, whole grain ready-to-eat cereal as croutons in salad or in place of crackers with soup.
