REACH Nutrition Procedures

Here are some details on school meals and what we are doing to feed your students nutritious meals!

The Nutrition Services Department is partnered with Preferred Meals to be our food vendor. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided by them for the 2020-2021 school year. Please feel free to look at their website to see what fabulous nutritious meals they have to offer.

We serve breakfast and lunch, which are available to all students for the school year 2020-2021, and an after-school snack will be served to those students who are enrolled in the after-school care program, BRIDGE. We're excited to offer a variety of nutritious meals that we know the students will enjoy!

If your student is on the 100% Distance Learning Program or if they are on the Hybrid Learning Program, you will still be able to receive daily breakfast and lunch through our drive up line. Mondays we will have the option of taking just that day's breakfast and lunch or a 5-day meal. Tuesday through Friday we will be handing out only daily breakfast and lunch. The meal packs are first come first serve. Drive-up hours are from 7:00 am - 9:00 am /12:00 pm - 2:30 pm.

Hybrid distance learning weeks: On Thursdays, Hybrid families will have the opportunity to take home 5-day meal packs as they leave campus to head into the distance learning week.

Students on campus: Upon arrival students will be offered a grab-and-go breakfast in the classroom. Because breakfast is such an important meal for children, we offer "Second Chance Breakfast" for those students who did not make it to the first serving time. Second Chance Breakfast is offered at the start of the first recess. During this time, the same breakfast meal that was served in the morning is served and offered at the same price to the students who missed it. Lunches will be served in the classroom during each scheduled lunchtime only. After school snack is served during the BRIDGE program and is only available to students enrolled in the program.

Note: 5-day meal packs are provided for students that are on distance learning. Students that are on campus will be provided meals on campus.

For the school year 2020-2021, all meals are free to all students and their siblings under 18. We are providing 1 breakfast and 1 lunch per day for children 2-18 daily.

This is what your child will be receiving at no cost to you.
