NEW THIS YEAR! Morris Jeff has a new food service provider at all three campuses. Genuine Foods has served K-12 schools in the New Orleans area for the last few years and we are excited to be in partnership with them. They have some exciting ideas and creativity in their menu focus that will be a great addition to our school. Student feedback at lunchtime seems to indicate they are a hit!

Genuine Foods posts all Morris Jeff menus on its website. Bookmark this link to find the ones for your student all year.

We continue to partner with The Healthy School Food Collaborative for school food authority compliance. *Free/Reduced eligibility must be applied for and obtained each school year.

Every year, parents MUST complete the School Lunch Application to see if their student qualifies for Free or Reduced lunch. Even if you do not believe you qualify, we encourage you to complete the application and check the box “I do not qualify” at step one. We understand that both the pandemic and other factors may have changed your family’s household income level in the last few years. Even if you have not previously been eligible, we strongly encourage you to apply this year. Certain state relief programs like P-EBT and disaster-related temporary assistance also use the Free/Reduced Lunch status information to determine eligibility.


  • Go to
  • Choose the zip code 70119.
  • Select Healthy School Food Collaborative as the District.

Are menus of what is going to be served to students available? Yes, menus can be found below on this page.

How much do school meals cost? 

  • Free = All meals free
  • Reduced = coming soon
  • Paid = $2 for breakfast and $3 for lunch

If my student does not qualify for free lunch, will my student be charged? Yes, students are billed for food received like they would if they went through the cafeteria line at their campus. Parents are responsible for paying for meals in a timely manner. 

Will the school be serving Breakfast and Lunch? Yes.

I know we do not qualify for free/reduced lunch. Do I have to fill out the form? Yes, check the box on the 1st page after the guideline that states “I do not qualify.” *Please note: If your household situation changes at any time, we encourage you to complete the form again to find out if you qualify for free or reduced lunch. Everyone needs to complete the application even if they know they receive direct certification or that they do not qualify at all.  

How can I check to see if my student has a food balance? You can sign up for a MySchoolBucks account with the Healthy School Food Collaborative to see real-time food balances and pay on your student’s account. 

What are the payment options? Cash or check at the front office of your student’s campus or you can register for a Healthy School Food Collaborative MySchoolBucks account to pay online via credit card. 

How can I create or access a MySchoolBucks account? Visit the Online Payments page of our website to learn how. MySchoolBucks is a website and a mobile app.

How often will I receive a paper bill? Bills are distributed monthly, but you can check your balance any time by registering for a MySchoolBucks account for Healthy School Food Collaborative.

Can my student bring lunch or breakfast to school? Yes, your student may bring a lunch or breakfast to school that is prepared at home. However, food that is purchased at a fast food restaurant or a restaurant that has a brand name logo on its packaging is not permitted to be served in our cafeterias.  

Can I drop off lunch or breakfast to my student at school?  This varies depending on the campus — please consult the 23-24 Student/Family Handbook (when available) for this.
