Welcome to the Food Services Department!Danita Shaw, Alyson Paredes, Jennifer Waddell, Pam QuincyThe Food Service Department would like to encourage students to start their day with a hot breakfast in the Elementary/Junior High or High School Cafeteria.
We also serve a nutritious lunch that meets the USDA daily requirements every school day in both the Elementary/Junior High and the High School Cafeterias.
We are here to serve and meet the needs of our students and would like to invite parents and grandparents to come and eat with their children anytime.
Liberty School District does not offer a summer feeding program due to its rural isolated location.

We’re getting healthier!
It’s a fact - healthier students are better learners. That’s why Liberty School District is working to create a healthier environment for our students. Our Wellness Policy Team encourages you to support our school Wellness Policy implementation. The Wellness Policy addresses school meal programs, nutrition education, physical activity, and foods available during the school day. We are considering a variety of ways to offer healthy food choices throughout our school--in the school meal programs, vending machines, classroom celebrations, and at school sponsored events. We are also supporting nutrition education in the classrooms, and physical activities.

Our Wellness Policy Team will meet monthly, and we welcome anyone with an interest in student health to attend. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call me at 245-3211 ext. 7-2219 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Creating a healthier school environment is a team effort, and we invite you to join us.
2020-21 Nutrition Newsletter for Parents
Breakfast and Lunch Program
Liberty School District participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program. We serve breakfast and lunch for all students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Monthly menus are posted on the district website and are also available at the office for students to take home. Every entrée is accompanied by a selection from the fresh fruit and vegetable bar, along with the choice of 1% white milk, non-fat chocolate milk, or non-fat strawberry milk.
Applications for free or reduced price meals must be filled out every year unless families are notified they have been directly certified through Basic Food, TANF, or FDPIR program participation. Application forms and additional information are available on our school website under the Food Services department tab.
2020-21 Meal Prices
Liberty meal accounts are “family” accounts and are shared by all siblings in a household, regardless of school building. Payments to your meal account may be made in the following ways:
- Checks made payable to Liberty with the student name(s) noted on the “for” line deposited at the school office,
- Cash in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the student’s name deposited at the school office, or
- Online debit card, credit card, or checking account payments via the link on our website at libertysd.us/e-funds*.
*First-time users of the online payment system will be prompted to create an e~Funds for Schools account login and password. It is important to note that it may take up to two business days for the payment to be posted to the student’s account, and a convenience fee will be applied at checkout.
Checking Balances Online
To view your student’s balance and transaction history online, visit Family Access at www.libertysd.us/familyaccess under the Food Service link. Contact the school office for your Family Access login information.
The district will allow students to charge meals on their lunch account if the balance is not sufficient. If you do not want your child to charge when the account is low/negative, please notify us via email at email@example.com, and we will block the student’s account. If the meal account reaches a balance of -$25.00, the Food Services Supervisor will call the parents to make sure they have been notified and discuss payment arrangements if needed. If the meal account reaches -$50.00, we will block the account from further charges until the balance is paid. Charging will not be allowed as of the first serving day in May.
Balance statements for all low and negative accounts will be emailed directly to parents/guardians once a week. Please ensure your child’s school has your current email address in order to receive these notices, and check your emails regularly.
