MS and US Meal Plans

This summer, we were thrilled to unveil a completely renovated Dining Hall. Along with the beautiful new dining space, there are some exciting updates to our Middle and Upper School food program - including more food choices and a commitment to sustainability. 

The Dining Service at Friends’ Central School provides students with high quality, nutritious, and flexible options. Food is available a la carte or through a prepaid meal plan. Meal plans are purchased within the first two weeks of school for the entire school year, from September-June, and they take into account sickness and off-campus events. Students who are leaving campus on a class field trip may stop by the Dining Hall the day before their trip and arrange for a packed lunch to be taken with them. Students purchasing food a la carte may pay by cash or through our debit system.

LS Meal Plans

The Dining Service at Friends' Central School has worked hard to design a meal program guaranteed to meet your child’s needs. We now offer two menus – one for students in Nursery through grade 1 and a second menu for students in grades 2 through 5. The goal is to provide kid-friendly meals that match the palate, fine motor skills, and portion size of our youngest to oldest students. We believe it is important for everyone, from our youngest students to our oldest, to be able to find their favorite foods. It is also important to provide the healthiest, freshest foods possible and to encourage good habits. Our menus are designed to accommodate both the finicky and the sophisticated young palates, while providing high quality, nutritional choices.
