Athlos Academy of St. Cloud is committed to providing healthy food choices to our students and maintaining high nutritional standards by offering attractive and delicious menu choices. All meals meet the nutrition requirements for the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program as defined by the USDA.

Many students are eligible for free meals. To find out if your child qualifies, please return a completed paper application to your child’s school. It takes just a few minutes to apply and only one application needs to be completed for all children (pre-k to high school) living in your household. If you have questions regarding the Free and Reduced-Priced application, contact us.

Free and Reduced Lunch applications will be made available just prior to the start of each school year. Families should complete an application annually and whenever significant changes in income may occur.

Students who do not return an application and/or are not eligible for free or reduced-price meals will pay $1.55 for breakfast and $3.00 for lunch. Additionally, students who qualify for reduced-price meals will receive breakfast and lunch meals at no charge.
