The Middle School and High School offer a large selection of Ala Carte items.  Ala Carte items are purchased separate from the student meal.

It is important that you and your student discuss their options and set limits that meet your family goals and nutritional needs of your student.


The Odessa R-VII School District serves meals under the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program, which includes a free and reduced price program for those families that are eligible.  The program excludes items that are sold on a strictly Ala carte basis.  Reduced price meals are $.40 for lunch and $.30 for breakfast.

Your student(s) may qualify for Free an Reduced meals if your family:

  • Is receiving Food Stamps
  • Is receiving Aid for Dependent Children
  • Meets the income guideline requirements per number of family members as listed in the financial data within the Free/Reduced Letter and Application.  When filling out the application, it is necessary to fill out all required fields within the application.  Failing to do so will result in the denial of the Free/Reduced meal benefits.

The identity of students who receive free or reduced meal benefits is kept confidential.  All students are treated equally regardless of their ability to pay.  In the operation of the school breakfast and lunch programs, no child will be discriminated against because of race, color, national origin, age or handicap.
