The Auburn School District participates in the USDA National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. We maintain confidentiality in classrooms and lunchrooms. All students (free, reduced, and/or full/regular price) use a PIN number (the student’s ID number) to access their account. It is important that students do not share their number (access to their meal account) with others. School meals meet USDA nutritional goals and dietary guidelines; the district's participation in the USDA National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs can entitle qualified students to receive free or reduced-price school meals.
