The USDA has recently issued new school meal requirements for the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. Chartwells School Dining Services manages the food service department at Coopersville Area Public Schools and has already begun incorporating several positive initiatives that will allow a smooth transition to the new meal requirements. For more information on the nutrition guidelines, please see the Nutritional Information page.

These new school meal requirements incorporate many changes which will directly impact our school meal prices. We have seen a dramatic rise in food prices and will continue to do so over the next several years due to increasing transportation costs and the continued roll out of the new meal legislative requirements. Meal prices are determined by Coopersville Area Public Schools.
$1.35 Elementary Breakfast
