Food Service


The Elmbrook Schools Department of Food and Nutrition Services contributes to the district's excellence by providing quality, nutritious and well balanced meals to students.

Elmbrook Food Services is a self-operated, not-for-profit business allowing for more personalized service and feedback on meal selections. In addition to the district's ten schools, Elmbrook Food Services serves local private/parochial schools and childcare centers.

Elmbrook Food Services offers well-managed programs and allergen aware kitchens, which include:

  • Breakfast at Brookfield Elementary / Burleigh / Dixon / Swanson Elementary, and middle/high schools
  • Lunch at elementary schools (two entree selections with fresh fruit and vegetable options), and middle & high schools (multiple entree selections with fresh fruit and vegetable bars)
  • Healthy ala carte items at middle and high schools, with products selected by a parent committee

However, if your student(s) current status is paid, we still encourage you to fill out an application for Free & Reduced Meal Eligibility to be qualified for additional benefits such as student fee waivers or P-EBT.
