Employment Opportunity

Imlay City School Food Service is looking for energetic people to assist during employee absences.  You will be joining a group of ladies who started working as just something to do while the kids went to school and stayed for the fun and companionship.  Many of our staff have worked more than 10 years.  Hours are usually between 10am - 2 pm which makes it very convenient because you don’t need to hire caregivers for your children since you are working while they are in school. Days off are the same as student days off (snow days, weekends, holidays).  To apply please stop by the Education Service Center, 634 Borland Rd., Imlay City, 48444 to complete an application.  Job description available upon request.  Any questions please call Roxanne Pierce, 810-724-9855 or email

Current News from ICS Food Service Department

Dear ICS Families:

While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently declined to continue funding this program. Imlay City Schools will continue to offer breakfast free to all students. However, we will need to return to offering lunches for a cost in order to sustain our Food Services program.

We understand this change may cause you to worry. However, there are important steps you can take NOW to be sure your student receives the meals they need this school year.

If your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them this fall, but you must take action to make it happen. Please complete the online application at Paper applications have also been sent home and are available at the school where your child attends. Completing an application is the only way to be considered for free or reduced meals for the upcoming school year. Please take action now.

If you do not qualify for free or reduced meals, you may begin depositing money into student accounts at any time to prepare for the cost of school lunches this year.

Meal prices for the 2022/23 school year will be:
Elementary $2.85
Middle School $3.15
High School $3.25

If your household qualifies for reduced priced meals, there will be no charge for the meal. Imlay City Schools Food Service Department accepts responsibility for the cost of reduced meals.

For assistance, please contact our Food Services Department at 810-724-9855.
