Plainfield Community School Corporation is dedicated to helping students and staff achieve and maintain healthy lives by promoting nutrition and physical activity, and by law, we follow Federal guidelines. In addition, we provide several tools that you can use to help manage your child's school meal plans, and we will explain them here.
Each Plainfield school offers breakfast and lunch to all students. We will provide daily and monthly menus on this page, along with information about allergies, meal costs and options for payment, and contact details for the Food Services Manager at each Plainfield school.
MEAL OPTIONS FOR STUDENTS LEARNING AT HOME
The PCSC Food Services team is now offering a meal program for students learning at home. To learn more about this program and to place an order, visit the order form at this link.
This program is made available with oversight from USDA, and differs from the spring and summer Food Truck program. These meals are not free, but follow the same qualifications as the USDA free and reduced lunch program.
Parents of qualifying students (those students who are participating in remote learning or are learning at home because of a COVID isolation or quarantine) may complete the online order to pickup breakfast and lunch meals on Monday mornings, for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and on Thursday mornings, for Thursday and Friday. Orders must be submitted for each meal pickup window. The Food Services webpage will reflect the current order form.
Payment for these meals can be made online, or checks will be accepted when meals are picked up. October 1-December 31, 2020 meals will be free of charge to all students who attend Plainfield Community School
Due to USDA requirements, meals may only be picked up by a parent/guardian of a qualifying student, or by someone else if the student is in the vehicle at time of pickup.
The September-October breakfast and lunch menu for remote learners can be found at this link:September-October Menu
PAYING FOR MEALS, BOOK RENTAL AND ACTIVITY FEES
There are several online services that allow families to fund student meal accounts or to pay book rental and activity fees. Cash is accepted for meal accounts but must be turned in to the homeroom teacher or placed in one of several secure dropbox locations throughout PCMS and PHS.
Free and Reduced applications for the school year 2020-2021 are now available.
LunchApp.com is the program we use to help manage our meal assistance program. To learn if you qualify for assistance, click here for the online application. If you prefer a paper application you may pick one up at the front office at your child's school or the administration building.

WHAT MAKES A MEAL?
Per Board Policy E-21, Plainfield Community School Corporation has established a Wellness Committee to meet the goals of supporting the health and well-being of our students by promoting nutrition and physical activity at all grade levels.
In accordance with federal law, it is the policy of the Board to provide students access to healthy foods and beverages; provide opportunities for developmentally appropriate physical activity; and require that all meals served by the school corporation meet or exceed the federal nutritional guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A coordinated school health advisory council oversees these activities.
The entire policy can be found at this link: Board Policy E-21
Anyone wanting to be an active member on the Wellness Committee is encouraged to contact the Director of -Food Services Kelly Collins 317-839-2578.
