BRSSD Lunch Program

To all BRSSD Parents and Guardians,

For 2018-19, the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District is pleased to provide a nutritious and satisfying lunch program in collaboration with The LunchMaster, our new vended meal provider. Each of our schools offers students a variety of entrees, fruits, vegetables, and drinks that comply with state and federal nutrition standards and seek to meet the high quality standards of our parents and students.

This year, lunch orders will be made through  www.TheLunchMaster.com.  Parents and guardians who want their children to participate in the District’s lunch program must register and order at the LunchMaster website.  All lunch orders and payments must be made in advance through the District's online payment and ordering system.

For 2018-19, the cost of a standard lunch will be $5.25.  This is $0.25 less than 2017-18 for grades TK-5, and $1.25 less for grades 6-8.  A larger portion meal will also be available at Ralston for $6.25.  Students who qualify for reduced-price meals pay $0.40.

Because all children are entitled to a nutritious lunch, the National School Lunch Program provides support for families through free and reduced-price lunches. We encourage all families to review the material on eligibility and income guidelines and to complete a free and reduced-price meal application if they think they might qualify. Please note that applications must be renewed annually.

Questions or concerns regarding the District’s lunch program should be directed first to the school Child Nutrition Clerk. If your questions or concerns are not adequately addressed, please contact Renee Boatwright, Administrative Assistant to the Chief Business Official, at 650-637-4800 x1050 or by email at rboatwright@brssd.org

Sincerely,

Craig A. Goldman, Chief Business Official
