We are pleased to announce that beginning Wednesday, March 1, 2017, all children/kids will be able to participate in eating a nutritious breakfast and lunch daily at no charge.
A new option under the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act called Community Eligibility Provision allows all students to eat nutritioius meals at no charge without having to worry about any paperwork. Students still need to have their lanyard with ID around worn around their neck to facilitate efficiently moving through the lines for scaning.
As a parent/guardian, that means you no longer have to worry about filling out Free and Reduced Meal applications. You can also avoid the morning rush to make breakfast at home or pack a lunch, and rest assured knowing that your child(ren) will have access to nutritious meals.
This program means more time to eat healthy meals by cutting down on time spent in the lunch line; no more worry about the stigma associated with free or reduced-price status because all students will receive meals at no charge.
Your school Café offers a wide variety of fresh, healthy and delicious options that are sure to please every student. Each meal is nutritionally balanced, and each student will have access to farm fresh fruits and vegetables every day. For a complete listing of all menu items as well as nutrition and allergen information, check out our YumYummi mobile menu app – available on Apple and Android – and also on the website at sdusd.yumyummi.com.
We hope your child(ren) joins us for a delicious breakfast or lunch soon.
Happy, healthy eating!
