2022-2023 School Meals
RUSD will continue to provide all students with 1 complete Breakfast and 1 complete Lunch at no charge for the 2022-23 school year.
However, if you complete the Alternate Household Income and Sharing Information with Other Programs forms and are eligible we can apply this eligibility to waive applicable student fees.
For school menus use the Nutrislice app for your location. Please note due to supply chain challenges, daily menus are subject to change.
National School Lunch Program
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally-assisted meal program created to offer healthy, balanced meals to students. Participating school districts will only receive a reimbursement from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the qualifying meals served. Incomplete meals are not reimbursable and are considered a la carte meals.
What is included in a qualifying lunch?
A qualifying lunch includes the following items:
- Meat or Meat Alternative
- Grains / Bread
- Fat-Free or 1% Milk
Students must take 3-5 of the components or servings listed above and must include at least ½ cup fruit or vegetable to qualify as a complete meal, and can be served at no charge.
Qualifying Meal vs. A La Carte
Students who select additional items or a meal that does not contain the components necessary to qualify as a meal will be charged "a la carte" or per item.
