The Sparta Area School District participates in the National School Lunch/School Breakfast Program. Nutritious meals are served every school day. All meals served must meet patterns established by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
Students may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. One family application must be submitted each year listing every child in the family. Applications are available throughout the school year from your school building. Questions regarding free and reduced-priced meals should be directed to the food service department at (616) 887-1744.
Parents can check student lunch account balances and recent transaction history by going to https://mm.spartaschools.org/mealmagic/mylunchaccount . You will need your students ID number available in PowerSchool. You may also contact the school building your student attends or call food service for the student ID number.
