School Meal Information for 2022-23
Dear Minuteman Students and Parents/Guardians,
Minuteman High School is excited to welcome Fresh Picks Café as our school meal provider for the 2022-23 school year. After listening to feedback from students over the past several months, Minuteman has selected Fresh Picks Café to offer a more robust option of breakfast and lunch items for students. Fresh Picks Café is a locally owned and operated company dedicated to serving delicious, wholesome, quality meals that meet the latest nutritional guidelines.
What Will Fresh Picks Café Serve?
Minuteman students will choose from stations offering a variety of daily lunch choices:
- Signature Picks features homemade buffet-style and made-to-order entrees.
- Market Fresh features a daily selection of entrée salads, bento boxes, and parfaits.
- Pizza Picks features quality fresh-baked pizza with whole grain dough and low-fat cheeses.
- Tu Manera offers a personalized burrito station.
- Express Picks offers hot “grab and go” sandwiches and more.
For breakfast, the Student Union will be open before the school day begins to provide a complete nutritious breakfast featuring a wide range of hot and cold options. All breakfasts are accompanied by a variety of fruit selections to enable students to choose a full, healthy meal to start their day.
Minuteman’s kitchen is now nut-free to reduce the chance of cross contamination.
Visit minuteman.org/menus to view the daily breakfast and lunch menus. You can also download a smartphone app through ISITE by searching for “Web Menus by Isite” on the App Store or Google Play. This portal allows you to view daily menus, ingredients, allergen information, calorie counts, and nutritional data. You can also find news about special events and promotions, and more.
Create Your My School Bucks Account:
Thanks to a program funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, all students can eat one free breakfast and lunch at no charge. However, students will have to pay for any additional meals.
- My School Bucks: In order to purchase additional meals, parents/guardians must create an account with MySchoolBucks.com. (Most students in grades 10-12 created accounts prior to this year.) When you visit MySchoolBucks.com, follow the prompts to establish an account and select “Minuteman VOCTEC” as your school. You will be asked to fund the account through a credit or debit card. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Principal George Clement.
Free/Reduced Cost Meal Form:
Parents/guardians: Please fill out this form to indicate if your student qualifies for free/reduced cost meals. Please note that each student is entitled to one free meal, but additional helpings are not free. It is important that Minuteman collects free/reduced-cost information for all students, regardless of their family’s income status, to ensure the district receives financial reimbursement from the government. This reimbursement is critical for funding several programs for all students.
Student Allergies or Special Needs Information:
If your student has a medically documented food allergy of special need when it comes to food, Minuteman’s Food Service Director will work closely with you and the school nurses to ensure your child’s specific needs are met.
We are excited to welcome Fresh Picks Café to the Minuteman family and look forward to a robust offering of delicious and nutritious food this year. If you have any questions, please contact Minuteman’s Food Services Director, Kathleen Currier.
