Breakfast and Lunch
Healthy bodies fuel healthy minds!
For the 2023-2024 school year, all students will receive one free breakfast and lunch at school each day. However, it is highly recommended and encouraged that all families fill out and submit the application, because your child(ren) may qualify for other benefits like reduced fees at school. The application may also help the school qualify for educational funds, discounts, and other meal programs.

NMFA will be partnering with CKC Good Food to provide our students with healthy Breakfast and Lunch options for our students. Our students will be offered a variety of healthy meal options from different cultures and backgrounds. For more information on CKC, visit their website at

Each school day, CKC Good Food proudly provides over 40,000 breakfast, lunch, after-school snacks and dinners to nearly 170 different sites. That amounts to more than 108,000 lunches a week, or about 3.7 million lunches each school year, all prepared in our central kitchen or clients’ kitchens. We aim to please our consumers with fresh, healthy meals they’ll actually want to eat and multiple menu rotations to sustain their long-term interest. Food Service Managers love us for the ways in which we help simplify daily tasks, and reduce the stress of USDA / Minnesota Department of Education compliance and Minnesota Department of Health visits. With more than 150 years of collective food service experience, we can help make your food service program the best it can possibly be.
