The Food Service Fund is where all revenues and expenditures are recorded that relate to the nutrition needs of our students. The MISD contracts with ARAMARK to run its food service operations.

ARAMARK serves breakfast and lunch every school day at each school cafeteria. The Food Service operation is an approximate $2.5 million program.
