Food Service


Food is a big part of everyone’s well-being, and South Redford students need a place to eat where they can connect with others, recharge, and enjoy a sense of happiness in their school. That’s why we serve food kids love to eat and create programs that encourage fun and discovery.


Our foodservice team is passionate about using fresh, nutritious, minimally processed and locally sourced ingredients, and we foster a sense of adventure in students through experiential learning activities – all with healthier students, healthier communities and a healthier planet in mind.


Our goal every day is to make sure that South Redford students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than when they came in! Learn more about our foodservice partner. Click HERE

South Redford School District remains CEP for the 2023/2024 school year. So what does that mean to families and students?
We still need EVERY HOUSEHOLD to complete the online Education Benefits Form (formerly Household Income Information Report) as part of their enrollment or Jump Start packet OR to turn in ONE (1) paper form that includes ALL household members. The online link is located below and the printable pdf. version is located to the left. Please turn in the completed paper form to the secretary at your student's school or email it to: [email protected] 
WHY is this important and necessary? Even though the forms are no longer needed to determine if a student will receive meals for free or at a reduced price, many areas of your student's education rely on State and Federal funding, and the amount of funding each school receives is determined by the information gathered from the Education Benefits Forms. The more forms that are turned in, the more funding the schools will receive. We want to ensure that South Redford School District receives all the funding it can to benefit our students, so we need your help. Please complete an Education Benefits Form online or turn one in.
Rest assured that ALL of the information on the form is strictly confidential.
Questions or concerns please contact Karen Cumming, Director of Dining Services
