Employment Oppurtunity

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

Big News from ICS Food Service Department

The Michigan Department of Education has once again provided a program that allows every public school student  to receive breakfast AND lunch for FREE. 

Beginning Monday, August 30 all of our students (In-person learning or Virtual/Remote learning) are eligible for free breakfast and free lunch. The only exception to this is that students who bring their lunch from home and want to purchase milk. In that case, students will be charged for milk. 

This program will be offered for the current school year.   It is still important that you complete and return the free and reduced lunch forms.  Our district is still required to process them in order to determine the funding the school district receives to benefit our students.  It also helps your student personally if you qualify by waiving the pay to play sports fee, waiving fees on certain college exams, and also qualifies your household if the government decides to expand the PEBT benefits through the current school year.

If you have questions about the application or require assistance completing it, please contact our Food Service Department at 810-724-9855 or email:
