Meal Magic

Columbia School District has implemented electronic cash registers called “Meal Magic” in all of our cafeterias. This new system allows us to set up debit accounts for each student. Meal Magic LogoParents/Guardians can then send a check to the school for their student’s lunch needs. Meal Magic will then track the amount spent by the student from each day’s meal auto-magically using the student’s name or ID number! We will have a record of all of your deposits and how the money is spent.

Note: If you have more than one student in the district, you can send one check for deposit. Make sure that all the student names and amounts that each account is to receive is included on the check. and are ready. To use you will need your student's ID number which you can get from the office or by calling Lindsay at (517) 769-8708. If you want to fill out an application for free or reduced lunches, you can go to or you can still fill out a paper application that you can pick up at the school office.

If you have any questions, please call our Food Service Director, Lindsay Beaulieu, at (517) 769-8708 or send an email to

School Food Guidelines
The School Food Guidelines are the result of a collaborative effort of the Coordinated School Health Team and District representatives for Columbia School District. The purpose of the School Food Guidelines Mission Statement is to enable schools to provide healthy and nutritious food and beverage choices to students and staff. The venues include but are not limited to vending machines, a la carte sales, food rewards, fundraisers, school stores, school parties, and after school activities.

By promoting healthy behaviors we can all help:
• Increase students’ level of alertness and ability to learn
• Reduce absences
• Improve behavior
• Teach lifelong healthy eating habits
• Prevent premature onset of chronic diseases
• Improve self image/self esteem
• Address the issue of childhood obesity
