Welcome to Mason's "Lion's Den Cafe"

As we look forward to a new school year, nutritiously planned and colorful school lunches will be available for your child. Breakfast and lunch will be served as part of the total education program at our school. Numerous studies have proven that a child cannot concentrate in the classroom when they are hungry.

Your student's school day may begin with breakfast which costs $1.50 a day - what a bargain! The new lunch menu is planned using a Food-Based Menu Planning approach and contains 5 food components - fruits, vegetables, grains, meat/meat alternative and milk. A lunch meal must contain 3 of the 5 components with a maximum of 5 components with at least one of the components being from the fruits or vegetable component (per the USDA guidelines). Cost for lunch is still just $2.25 per day - another great bargain. The cafeteria is also featuring different fresh Farm to School items each month.

All accounts must be in a positive balance for students to enjoy our daily offerings. In addition to the regular meal, a student with a positive account balance can purchase additional items at the cost listed below. Grain and meat/meat alternative components are not available to purchase as ala carte sales.
Milk     $.40
Sides     $.40
Small water $.40
Prepayments can be made online at (you will need your child's student ID number to set up an account), by cash or by check in the cafeteria.

If a child receives free or reduced meals, that child is eligible for both breakfast and lunch. To determine if your child qualifies, fill out a Free and Reduced form online on Mason Elementary's web page or Gwinnett County Schools' main web page or You are responsible for payment until you are approved by the Free and Reduced office. "Reduced" price is $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch.

We invite you to join your child for lunch, but no fast food is permitted in the cafeteria. We do feature an adult bar for $3.00. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 770-232-3382 or just stop by anytime between 7:00 am and 2:00 pm.
