Catering, Facility Use, and Staff Resources

Staff meal payments

Staff are expected to keep meal balances positive at all times. Nutrition Services cashiers will not allow staff to receive a meal if their balance is at or below $0. Please make pre-payments to keep your account in good standing either online through our online payment system, or through the Nutrition Services cashier. Your lunch balance may be checked on Skyward or through the Nutrition Services Cashier. We appreciate your attentiveness to keep accounts positive.

Classroom/field trip sack lunch orders

Sack lunch order requests should be made at least 10 days prior to the date needing lunches. Current supply issues make it difficult to receive products in a timely manner. If you do not complete your sack lunch request within the required time frame, it can not be guaranteed we will have the items to prepare the sack lunches.

Non-event food and supply ordering

If your school/department/classroom would like to order food/supplies, please send an email to: nutrition.resource@kelsosd.org outlining your request at least 10 days prior to needing the items with a completed Food and Supply Order Request Form. Nutrition Services operates a federal Non-Profit School Food Service Account and must upcharge items used outside of school meal items. Please expect items to have a significant markup.

The department/school will be required to provide a budget code prior to placing the order and an invoice will be sent for inter-district billing accordingly.
