About GCSD Food Service

Glenwood Community School District is offering no cost Breakfast and Lunch to all students in school year 2021-2022 through the Seamless Summer Option Meal Program. Please fill out a Free and Reduced application as this helps the Glenwood Community School District with other programs and possible student fees.

GCSD provides a computerized system that allows participants to deposit money into a Food Service account from which they may draw to purchase items. Students will be issued a meal account ID card which they will use in the meal service line and to purchase milk and ala carte foods. Please deposit money into your student’s account the first day of school and when the account is low. You may also deposit money on the EZschoolPay.com website. Money left in accounts at the end of the year will stay in your student’s account unless we receive a written request for a refund from the parent or guardian.

We now offer EZSchoolPay.com so parents can monitor their child’s meal account balance and transactions online and set up a payment reminder email for FREE. Also, parents may make pre-payments into their child’s account anytime using Visa or MasterCard (credit or debit). The convenience fee of $3.00 is charged by the school district. The fee is designed to cover or offset the normal costs of processing credit card transactions and other costs associated with maintaining a credit card merchant account. If you wish to use this service, you may sign up at www.EZschoolPay.com. Parents need to notify the clerk if they would like to “block” a student from receiving extra milk or ala carte items, or put spending limits on their account.

The Free and Reduced price Iowa Eligibility Application may be needed by your school for other programs such as Title 1, your students P-EBT (Pandemic-Eligibility Benefit Transfer) card and discounted school fees such as Summer School, Drivers Education, AP & PSAT testing. An Iowa Eligibility Application (Free and Reduced) form must be filled out (renewed) each school year. You can fill out an application online at www.EZmealapp.com or pick up a printed copy at any building office.

All students may purchase milk for $.40 to go with a Lunch brought from home, but this milk is not part of the Seamless Summer option meals program.  If your student wants the free milk that comes with the Free Seamless Summer Option meal they must take the whole meal. There must be money in the account to purchase milk for a lunch brought from home.  We ask that parents not send bottled/canned soda with lunch brought from home.
