Our Mission:

We provide healthy meals each day to students at 57 sites and employ over 200 staff members. Our nutrition program allows us to provide healthy breakfast and lunch to students in the West Ada School District. We have four sites that currently meet federal requirements for additional funding to provide students with free breakfast and/or lunch. These sites include Meridian Elementary, Frontier Elementary, McMillan Elementary, and Ustick Elementary

We offer After School Snack Program at Crossroads Middle School and McMillan Elementary School. This program is a federally assisted snack service that fills the afternoon hunger gap for school children in an afterschool program. It is regularly scheduled with activities in a structured and supervised environment, including an educational or enrichment activity.

Payments

Titan has converted to LINQ Connect as of May 2023. All information, including log in information, will be transferred from Titan to LINQ Connect.

Setting up a LINQ Connect account is free. From your account, you can monitor your student's activity, view menus, add funds (credit card only, transaction fee applies), and apply for free/reduced lunch. To set up an account, click below and choose "Register." Then create an account for yourself. Then link your student to your account. Unfortunately, LINQ does not accept debit cards at this time. LINQ can only process credit cards.

Payments can also be made directly to the Kitchen with cash or check (payable to School Nutrition). There are no transaction fees associated with these types of payment.

Meal Cost Guidelines

Each student and employee in the West Ada School District is set up with an account in the School Nutrition Services system. A student or employee identification number is used to access the account to purchase either breakfast or lunch.

This is a prepayment system that allows any amount of money to be placed on the account. Students that will be returning to the school district may leave positive balances on their accounts for use the next year. 

At West Ada we believe in feeding all children that come through our service lines. It is our procedure if a student comes into our serving line, they will not be denied a meal based on their account balance or eligibility status. Negative balances will be communicated regularly with legal guardians listed in PowerSchool.  If you wish to not have your student(s) be able to purchase a school meal, please reach out to the School Nutrition Office at 208-855-4575 or via email at nutrition@westada.org for blocks to be added on to their account. Click below to review our current policy/procedure.

REFUNDS: Parents/Guardians of seniors, students moving out of the district or students that do not use their accounts may request a refund by contacting the School Nutrition Services office at (208)855-4575 or emailing nutrition@westada.org. You can also donate remaining funds to help with negative balances.
