Food Service

Welcome to the Fort Dodge School District Food Service Website!

If you are not receiving email notifications regarding low lunch account balances and would like to, please contact Ursuala Roberts at 574.5677. 

This website allows parents and students to learn more about the School Lunch Program. We hope you are able to find the information you need. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any suggestions on how to improve this site.

Each day our team of foodservice employees prepare and serve almost 3000 meals to students in our nine schools.  It has been proven that students need good nutrition to feed their minds and bodies to enable them to learn while in school. Our goal is to provide a high quality, safe, and healthy meal to every Fort Dodge student while providing the best customer service possible.

Taher Inc. manages the Food Service Program on behalf of the school district. We are proud to serve you and will continue to work with students, parents and school administration to make your program the best it can be. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the lunch program, please email me or call me anytime.


Automated dailer calls are made daily as a reminder of a low dining account balance.  Emails are sent out reminding parents to add money to their dining account. Middle School and Sr. High students are verbally reminded by cashiers to add money to their dining account. If you are not receiving low balance notifications, and would like to please call Ursuala at 515-574-5677.

Upon reaching the $20 charge limit per family, the following rules will apply:

  • Students will not be able to purchase breakfast.
  • Students in grades 9-12 will not be allowed to eat school lunch.
  • When a family’s account balance is zero, students will not be able to charge ala carte items; this includes milk that would be purchased if a student brought their own lunch from home.

We feel that every child should have the opportunity to have school lunches. If you have a student(s), and are making no attempt to pay a negative balance, the Fort Dodge Community School District reserves the right to interrupt your child’s meal service. If interruption should happen, a letter will be sent to the home address, requesting you to provide a "sack" lunch for your student.  To ensure your child does not have interruption in their meal services please call Food Services to make arrangements to bring your account up to date.

Payments are accepted by cash, check or online by clicking the "Check Account Balance" button above. Any money remaining at the end of the school year will be transferred with the student to the next grade.
