Food Services

The No. 1 priority of Moon Area School District’s food service program is to provide nutritious, well-balanced meals to all of its students with the focus on quality, variety and appeal. MASD's food service provider is Metz Culinary Management.

In order to achieve this goal, we purchase certain products that must meet the child-nutrition criteria (CN label products), or we follow recipes that are approved by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Free and Reduced breakfast and lunch is available to all who qualify. Learn more about food choices and costs by following the links below.
