Meal Services Available to Future Students

Future Public School believes all students, regardless of their ability to pay, deserve access to healthy and nutritious meals. In partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County Moseley Center we provide breakfast and lunch every day school is in session through the School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program. The experienced Club nutrition and kitchen staff ensure meals are prepared according to federal guidelines and meet nutrition requirements. We believe this is an important investment in creating and welcoming a diverse population of students into the Future community, and we work hard to ensure students have the nutrition they need to be successful. Students are never denied access to food.

School Breakfast Program
The teachers and staff at Future hold high expectations for our students and provide many opportunities for them to engage in joyful but academically rigorous activities. In partnership with our families we promote starting the day off right by eating a healthy breakfast, one that helps them take advantage of the many nutritional benefits of consuming more fruits, dairy, and whole grants to fuel them to become better leaders and learners.

Fresh Fruit & Vegetables Program
In partnership with the Boys & Girls Club we are excited to share that in the 2023-24 school year we received a grant from the Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Program (FFVP). This free program will provide all Future engineers with healthy afternoon snacks twice per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting the week of September 5, 2023. Snacks will be delivered to K-6 homeroom classrooms, and teachers will share nutritional information about the product.

This exciting program gives engineers more opportunities to eat healthy food and introduces them to new, interesting fruit and vegetables they may not have otherwise tried. This includes fruit like starfruit, locally grown peaches, and kiwi to vegetables such as watermelon radishes, rainbow carrots, and kale. More information about the program can be found here.

Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)
The Boys & Girls Club provides free breakfast, lunch and dinner for children 1-18 over the summer at their Moseley Center and Riverfront Park in Garden City. SFSP meal services do not allow any food to leave the service area and all items must be eaten on site.

Food Preferences & Allergies

Food Modifications
If your student has a food allergy or special dietary restrictions please review this process overview for requesting an accommodation. Submitting a completed medical statement form is one requirement, and it must be signed by a medical doctor. These forms are also available from the front office.

Menus are posted monthly and printed out throughout the building to provide students, families, and staff information about upcoming meals. Due to supply chain shortages, menus may need change on short notice.

Meal Costs

Some children may qualify for free or reduced-price school meals. No student shall be denied access to an adequately nutritious meal due to a family’s inability to pay. Guardians will be required to maintain meal funds in the LINQ Connect meal portal throughout the school year and can continue to load funds as needed. As balances become low or negative, the Front Office will notify families and attempt to collect payment as needed. Funds will rollover from year to year.

BREAKFAST $0.30 $2.10 $3.00
LUNCH $0.40 $3.10 $4.95

About Free & Reduced Price Meals
Free and reduced lunch forms are at the link provided or available at the office. Eligibility for free or reduced meals is determined annually based on combined household income and Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines. We encourage all families to complete these forms even if not participating in the meal program. Families may meet certain requirements to be eligible for state benefits that can only be identified by completing a free and reduced lunch form.

Wellness at Future

Research shows that good nutrition and physical activity before, during, and after school are strongly correlated with positive student outcomes. Future aims to give engineers many opportunities for these through Movement, play, and our meal (breakfast, lunch) and snack programs, as outlined in the Future Wellness Policy.

Our Wellness Committee provides annual leadership to Future staff, families, and partners in updating and implementing our wellness policy. You can see the latest Triennial Review of our Wellness Policy here. The 2024-25 committee is listed below and meetings are held three times a year.

Amanda Cox, Executive Director (Wellness Coordinator)
Lauren Tassos, Chief Financial Officer (Child Nutrition Director) 
Noel O’Shea, Child Nutrition Coordinator
Allyson Maynard, Science Guide 
Brandon McGurkin, Movement Coach 
Parent Liaison – TBD for 24-25 School Year

We strongly encourage all interested family members and community partners to join committee meetings: the more input and enthusiasm we have for wellness at Future, the more successful we (and our engineers) will be! Meetings are scheduled as follows and agenda items and materials can be found here. Want to learn more or get engaged? Reach out to Amanda Cox.
