Parents are always welcome to join their children for lunch!

Hot Lunch Program

Union students have the option of bringing their lunch or purchasing a hot lunch, sandwich or salad in the school cafeteria. Elementary students should purchase lunch tickets from the cafeteria manager between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. Schools can accept either a daily cash payment for meals or a pre-paid dollar amount ranging from $1 to $200. If lunch money is lost or forgotten, a student is permitted to charge lunch for three days only.

Elementary students will receive an alternate meal after seven (7) charges and we allow one charge for secondary students.  View district charge policy.

Food may not be ordered from outside vendors and/or delivered to school without prior permission from the principal. Parents must check in at the school office first when delivering food items. Parents must be present with the student in the cafeteria if food is brought in from outside.


Students may pay for an entire month or an entire semester. Money is deposited in each child's lunch account and deducted daily. With pre-payment, students do not need to carry money to school on a daily basis.


The most important meal of the day is usually the one meal that most people skip-breakfast. Thankfully, school breakfast is available at all Union Public School sites.

There are many advantages to eating breakfast at school:  it saves time in the morning in the hectic rush to get to school, work, etc.; school breakfasts are nutritious; school breakfasts consists of foods that students like such as pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, and French toast; and students can eat with their friends and classmates.  There are eight elementary schools that provide breakfast in the classroom.  Consider trying breakfast at school and “jump start” your student’s day with a nutritious meal that will help them perform their best!

If your child’s application was approved in a previous year, you still need to fill one out for the current year. Your child’s application is only good for one school year and the first few days of the new school year.
