  • About Us

    The mission of the IPS Foodservice Department is to provide students with nutritious meals they will enjoy at the lowest possible cost to students, parents & taxpayers.
     
    IPS participates in several USDA Child Nutrition Programs, including: National School Breakfast Program, National School Lunch Program, Child & Adult Care Food Program, Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program, and the After School Snack Program. In addition, IPS serves meals during all school breaks through the USDA's Seamless Summer Meals program.
     
    Breakfast and lunch are served each school day at no charge to all IPS students under the USDA’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP pertains only to meals and does not extend to textbook assistance and other educational benefits.  All IPS students must pay textbook rental fees, unless you have been notified in writing that your child has been approved for textbook assistance for the current school year. Applications must be submitted each school year.
     
    Parents who wish to apply for textbook assistance must submit an Application for Educational Benefits each school year. One application per household is required. See the Application and Parent/Instruction letter for information on how to apply.  You will be notified IN WRITING when your application is approved or denied. If you do not receive notification within ten days, call 317-226-4951. 
     
    Applications are confidential and the information provided will not be shared with others.

     

    This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
