Leslie Food Service

***SCHOOL YEAR 2023/24***          

This year LESLIE PUBLIC SCHOOLS is participating in the Michigan Meals Program where ALL STUDENTS will receive free meals (breakfast & lunch) for the 2023-2024 school year.

If you normally complete a Free/Reduce lunch application (INFORMATION listed below) please complete one for this year as well even though meals are FREE. There are numerous programs where the state uses our free/reduced percentages to determine the amount of funding Leslie Public Schools will receive.

During Covid when all meals were free, Leslie Food Service experienced a decrease in our free and reduced percentages which then resulted in lower funding in many programs the following year. Please help us to continue giving your child the best education. 

The Food Service Director has already completed the first run of Directly Certified students from the State. If you have already received a benefit letter via email for this year you do not need to fill out an application for this year unless one of your students is not on the notification. If you are missing students or have any questions please email Kristen Hawkins - Food Service Director at kristen.hawkins@lesliek12.net.
