Student Meals at No Charge
ALL Magic City Acceptance Academy students are provided healthy, nutritious meals at no charge including breakfast and lunch through the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. At the start of each month, breakfast and lunch menus will be posted here, available at the front office, and posted in the cafeteria.
We are pleased to be partnering with Preferred Meals who will be supplying meals for our school. Meals are planned with student preferences in mind and follow the regulations of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program. Healthy School Meals contain:
Fresh Fruits and/or 100% fruit juice
A variety of vegetables
A choice of milk
Meals are calorie controlled, low in sodium, contain less than 10% saturated fat and 0g of trans fat.
This is a great year for your student to participate in the meal program as all meals are served at no charge.

Students are not permitted to bring in foods that are unhealthy or high in sugar including candy, soda, energy drinks, donuts, cupcakes, chips, salty snacks, candy bars, etc. Additionally, students are not permitted to bring food that require excessive preparation.
