Notes from Dr. Sullivan

School Lunch and Breakfast

The Food Service Department is experiencing trouble receiving products from their supplier. This is causing changes to the menu throughout the week. At this time they are no longer going to publish the monthly menu, instead, a more accurate menu is be updated weekly at the following site: http://menus.sodexomyway.com/BiteMenu/Menu?menuId=16297&locationId=70014001&whereami=https://millardps.sodexomyway.com/landing/elem#

Good News for Sack Lunches who want a Milk

Sack lunch students can go through the lunch line and select their milk along with 2 other meal components. An example could be a student selects a milk, fruit and a vegetable. This would meet the minimum requirements for the district to receive reimbursement from the USDA and no cost to the student.


Or, if you prefer your student can purchase an individual milk for $.50.


Questions, contact Judy Kirst at jtkirst@mpsomaha.org or 402-715-8359.

Please note that the food service department has suspended printing the monthly menu due to food shortages. Clicking the link above will take you to the Neihardt food service page with the weekly menu. Food Service will keep this page updated with the breakfast and lunch choices.
