John Muir Cafeteria

Hot Breakfast & Lunch

The school cafeteria offers hot breakfast (8:00 a.m. – 8:15 a.m.) and lunch every school day. A menu goes home the first Wednesday of each month. A Farmer's Market salad bar is available every day as an alternative to hot lunches.


Breakfast $1.25

Lunch $3.00

Pay Online My School Bucks

Students may buy an individual meal in cash but are encouraged instead to use a lunch card, which requires that parents purchase meals in advance. Payments are accepted at the front desk in the school office, checks payable to SMMUSD. Parents who prepay will receive written notice when the number of available meals reaches five. Parents can also check with the cafeteria manager directly to find out how many lunches remain. If a child comes through the serving line without payment, the school office will send a note home. According to District policy, the cafeteria cannot extend credit beyond three consecutive meals. After this point, a child without money will be offered an alternative meal of a cheese sandwich and milk. Please keep track of your payments!

Free & Reduced-Cost Breakfast & Lunch

Your child may be eligible for free or reduced-cost breakfasts and lunches. Applications for this program are available in the school office and must be submitted by parents each year.

Sack Lunches & Snacks

Children may bring a lunchbox or sack lunch from home, as well as a snack to eat during morning recess. In keeping with our
District policy concerning nutrition, we encourage parents to send healthy lunches and snacks to school. Glass bottles, soda, and
candy are not allowed.
