During normal operations, Maercker School District 60 participates in the National School Lunch Program. The National School Lunch Program is a federally-assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free breakfast and lunches to children each school day.

Families who believe they may qualify are encouraged to apply for free or reduced cost meal benefits.  A link to the application can be found in the Links at the top of the page.

The District offers the option of purchasing an extra milk on a daily basis for $0.50.  Students at Westview (grades 6th-8th) and Maercker School (grades 3rd-5th) also have ala carte choices for additonal purchase. We use the USDA Smart Snacks in School Standards for all items available for purchase.
