Summer 2020 Meal

2023-2024 School Year Meals

District 58 partners with Quest Food Management to offer lunch each school day at Herrick Middle School and O’Neill Middle School as part of the federal government’s National School Lunch Program.

The lunch program has regulations that must be followed in all aspects of our operation, including USDA dietary guidelines and nutritional requirements. These requirements include whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables every day, only fat-free or low-fat milk, reduced saturated fat, reduced sodium, and no trans fats.

Our goal is to nurture student well-being by appreciating healthy school meals, choosing nutritious foods, and adopting a healthy lifestyle. To accomplish that, we provide menus that meet or exceed federal standards, innovative dining environments and wellness education.

The District also partners with Quest Food Management to offer a boxed lunch for elementary students that parents can order online.

Pilot Elementary Lunch Program

In the fall of 2023, the District began a pilot program for a boxed cold lunch for elementary students in grades K-6. Parents of elementary students can purchase the boxed lunches through The online program gives parents the ability to manage and pay for students’ meal purchases and they will be delivered to each student’s school. The meals are made by District 58’s food service provider Quest. To sign up, visit and click the login button, then click on “Register for a Free Account.” 

To sign up, parents/guardians need their student’s ID number, last name and school to complete registration. Purchases on the system can be made through a checking account or credit card. 

Elementary Menus can be found in MyMealOrder

How to set up a MyMealOrder Account

Here are detailed step-by-step directions to set up an account at and to begin placing orders. Student ID numbers were furnished in an email to parents sent on Oct. 19. Student ID numbers are also available by calling the school and shown on each parent’s PowerSchool and PushCoin accounts. 

The system eliminates the need to send checks to school or worry about lost or forgotten money. 

The elementary lunch is a pilot program that is temporary until the construction of new kitchens at the two middle schools. The new kitchens would provide the opportunity to create a satellite program to deliver hot lunches to the elementary schools.  Construction is possible due to the successful referendum to modernize, add air conditioning and transition 7th graders to the middle schools.  There will be three phases of construction. The first phase of construction will begin over spring break but completion of the kitchens at the two middle schools won’t be for two-plus years. 

The District will seek feedback on this pilot program in the fall and winter of 2023. If there are questions about the online platform, please refer to the MyMealOrder help section, which includes both an FAQ and a contact form.

2023-24 School Year Meal Payment

District 58 operates a cashless system for school lunches called PushCoin. Parents can fund student lunch accounts online at any time using an electronic check or credit/debit card. Students pay by scanning their school ID. The payment system will automatically deduct the lunch from the student’s lunch account and record what was purchased. Parents can login at any time to see balances, fund the account, or see what their child has purchased. The PushCoin system eliminates the need to handle cash and helps greatly with lunchroom efficiency.

Visit the PushCoin website to access your account or register to set one up. Please note that PushCoin is administered by a third party—the Quest Food Service Department does not have access to your online account.  Click HERE to add funds to your child's wallet.


All snacks and a la carte products sold in the middle school cafeterias meet the USDA Smart Snack guidelines. Students must have money on their account or cash in order to purchase any of the snacks or a la carte items. Charging or overdrawing accounts for the purchase of these items is not allowed.
