Welcome to Glenwood Community Schools

2020-2021 Food Services Program

Glenwood Community School District provides a computerized system that allows participants to deposit money into a Food Service account from which they may draw to purchase lunch, breakfast, and ala carte items using a Personal Identification Number (PIN).  The Food Service Program will issue each student and school staff a PIN number to use when purchasing meals or other food items. DURING THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR WE WILL ISSUE ALL STUDENTS A MEAL ACCOUNT ID CARD WITH A BAR CODE PRINTED ON IT. THE STUDENTS WILL PRESENT THE CARD IN LINE SO THE CLERK CAN SCAN THE CARD MAKING THE CHARGING OF MEALS TOUCH FREE. THIS WILL HELP PREVENT THE TRANSMISSION OF GERMS IN THE LINE.
Please deposit money into your student’s account at registration, the first day of school and when the account is low. You may also deposit money on the website. Money left in accounts at the end of the year will stay in your student’s account unless we receive a written request for a refund from the parent or guardian.

Food Service must collect money for accounts in the early part of the school day. Due to time constraints during the lunch service time, we cannot accept money for deposit in the lunch line.  Meals must be paid for in advance; therefore, money needs to be put into the account before purchasing can begin.

Reminder notes will be printed at Northeast Elementary and West Elementary schools.  Please contact your student’s teacher if you do not receive the reminder notes.  Reminders start when an account reaches $10.00 or less. Middle School and High School students are told in the line when the balance gets low. We do not send reminders home at this age level.

PLEASE READ THE 701.3 MEAL CHARGES POLICY INCLUDED IN THIS PACKET! This includes information on the State and Federal law, Payment of meals, Payment methods and Negative account balance procedures.

We now offer so parents can monitor their child’s meal account balance and transactions online and set up a payment reminder email for FREE.  Also, parents may make pre-payments into their child’s account anytime using Visa or MasterCard (credit or debit). The convenience fee of $3.00 is charged by the school district. The fee is designed to cover or offset the normal costs of processing credit card transactions and other costs associated with maintaining a credit card merchant account. If you wish to use this service, you may sign up at

The Food Service Clerk at your child’s school or can provide you with a printout of your student’s account.  It will show when money was deposited, when money was deducted, and what was purchased from the account.  Parents need to notify the clerk if they would like to “block” a student from receiving breakfast or ala carte items, or put spending limits on their account.  If you have additional questions about your food service account, contact the clerk between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. or call the food service office at 712-527-5029.

An Iowa Eligibility Application (Free and Reduced) form must be filled out (renewed) each school year.  You can fill out an application online at or pick one up a printed copy at any building office. There is also one in this meal packet. Students approved for FREE meals may eat both breakfast and lunch at no cost.  Students approved for REDUCED priced meals may purchase breakfast at a cost of $.30 and lunch at a cost of $.40 daily. Free, reduced, and full paying students may purchase milk for $.40 to go with a sack lunch, but this is not part of the Free and Reduced meals program.  There must be money in the account to purchase milk for a sack lunch.  We ask that parents not send bottled/canned soda with sack lunches.
