A Message from Food Service

Starting January 7, 2019, a new policy went into place at all Northville Public Schools elementary schools regarding the purchase of extra food items at lunch. All extra items will be cash only with the exception of double orders of main entrees (i.e. a second slice of pizza), milk and water, which will be charged to your student’s Food Service account. Double orders are $1.75 per additional entree, and $0.50 for an additional order of milk or water. Please make sure your student understands these extra food items are not free to avoid your student’s Food Service account from becoming overdrawn.

Please call Food Service at 248-344-3690 with any questions.
