Child Nutrition Services
Dear RBUSD TK-12 Parents/Guardians:
We recognize that our District’s school closure plan will impact students in a myriad of ways. With that in mind, all District students are welcome to come to the Adams Middle School parking lot (2600 Ripley Avenue) on Mondays and Thursdays to pick up meals between the hours of 8:00am and 11:00am.
On Mondays, students will receive 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursdays, students will receive 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches for Thursday and Friday. These meals will be provided to all students at no charge. Because our campuses are closed, we ask that students please consume these meals off campus.
Important: We will not be serving meals during Spring Break (April 6th - 10th). Meal service will continue through Friday, May 1st, unless otherwise stated. Students must be present to receive these meals.
Welcome to Child Nutrition Services:
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand! Child Nutrition Services is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to our students' health, well-being and their ability to learn.
Our district participates in the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program, following strict federal and state nutrition guidelines. All of our breakfast and lunch meals are whole grain-rich, low in saturated fat, zero trans-fat, reduced sodium, low-fat or fat-free dairy and meet specific calorie requirements. A variety of fresh fruits and vegetables are available daily on our salad bars. For a complete meal, every student is required to take ½ cup of fruit and/or vegetables.
Breakfast is served before the start of school. However, we understand the challenges of getting your student to school on time. For this reason, most of our elementary schools and our middle and high schools participate in providing a second chance breakfast during their break time to assure that your student is well fed and ready to learn. Middle school and high school students also have the opportunity to purchase USDA Smart Snack-approved food and beverages items during their break and lunch times.
Please take your time to navigate through the other pages to better understand our program.
