As we move forward into the 2023-24 school year, due to the budget recommendations proposed by Governor Whitmer, the District will again be providing both breakfast and lunch meals to all students without cost to families. However, we are still required to provide and maintain Free and Reduced Lunch Applications, as submitted. A la carte items will be available to purchase if there are funds in the student’s account. The Food Service Department will now be using MySchoolBucks, so please access the following link, which can also be found on our web site https://www.troy.k12.mi.us/departments/food-service/breakfast-lunch-menus.
Please also take a moment to complete the attached Free & Reduced Lunch/Summer EBT/Educational Benefit Application for the 2023-24 school year. While this may not pertain to everyone, it does ensure that the Troy School District will continue to receive state and federal funding for education. Without this information, Troy Schools could lose important state funding for our programs that our students are entitled to.

Governor Whitmer has approved free meals for all students this school year
We are pleased to announce that Governor Whitmer has approved free meals for all students this school year. That said, each student is now entitled to one free breakfast and one free lunch on each scheduled school day.
We are still encouraging families to complete a Free and Reduced Application, regardless of the fact that all meals are free this year. A free or reduced lunch status offers additional benefits to the student, including athletic fee waivers, club fee waivers, AP testing waivers, etc. See attached for the new 2023-24 Free and Reduced Application. Applications can be turned in to the Food Service Office at 4420 Livernois, or they can be dropped off at any of the school Front Offices. You may also mail a hard copy to: TSD Food Service Department - 4420 Livernois, Troy, MI 48098
If you would like your child to receive breakfast, please see attached flyer (“Breakfast Flyer”).
-Secondary Students can pick up their breakfast from the cafeteria before school. Elementary Students must sign up by submitting a one-time enrollment form. Please complete one form for each of your children. Click on the link below:
A La Carte items (snacks, beverages, extra entrees) are available for purchase. You may deposit funds to your student’s account via MySchoolBucks.The Food Service Department no longer uses SchoolPay for lunch account payments. TSD still utilizes SchoolPay for other auxiliary payments, such as field trips, t-shirts, supplies, etc. See attached flyer for more information.
-Students are required to bring their Student ID cards through the line when they reach the cash register. The purpose of ID cards is to ensure that each student account is rung up correctly. This also provides quicker and smoother service. Beginning this school year, we will now provide Elementary Students with ID cards, instead of PINs.
Please keep an eye out for our menus on the TSD Website. If any of your children have food allergies, please contact the Food Service Office to receive meal accommodations. You may also visit our nutrition website at troysd.nutrislice.com.
