PreOrder Required for Lunches

Effective January 9th, District 41’s food service partner Quest now requires preorders for all elementary school lunches. The preordering process allows Quest to better provide the accurate number of lunches to each school building. This process is required for all elementary students including families who have approved fee waivers.

Please order before midnight Thursday January 12 for next week.


  • For families who order two lunches for their child on the same day, note that the second lunch will be an additional charge. This includes families who are in the waiver program and receive the first meal free of charge.
  • If a beverage is purchased such as milk without purchasing a meal, your account will be charged the a la carte beverage cost.

Preordering is through an app/website called MyMealOrder.com (MMO). In order to get started with MMO you must complete the following steps:

Step 1: Go to mymealorder.com to login Click here

Step 2: Click here for instructions on how to locate your student’s ID. You will need your child’s school ID number to set up myMealOrder.

Step 3: Place your order by midnight on Thursday night for the following week.

If you miss the preorder window and your child doesn’t have lunch from home, your child will be served a Sunbutter sandwich along with a snack and drink. The menus will be up in advance and families may preorder for more than one week at a time.

Please note, the above process is being used solely to collect lunch orders. The charges related to your orders will be automatically transferred to your PushCoin account and applied against your existing balance.
