    All meals served are free to children 18 and younger. Some sites offer low-cost meals for parents and caregivers. These summer meals follow a meal pattern that ensures kids and teens get healthy meals. If you have questions, please call 602-243-4814.

    The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well-being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

    Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

    We feed all children under the age of 18 breakfast and lunch every school day free of charge. Registered students will receive meals at school from their cafeterias. Those students attending the Online Academy and those not attending Roosevelt in-person can contact the school closest to their home to arrange a time and day for meal pickup.

  • Community Eligibility Provision

    We are pleased to inform you that our district will be implementing a new provision available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision.

    This means all enrolled students in our school district, regardless of income level, are eligible to receive a healthy school breakfast and school lunch at no charge each day. No further action is required of you. Your children will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.

    The Community Eligibility Provision is a new alternative to the traditional meal application process associated with the United States Department of Agriculture National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. The provision alleviates the burden on families by eliminating household applications, while helping schools reduce costs associated with collecting and processing those applications.
