BRSSD Lunch Program

To all BRSSD Parents and Guardians,

For 2017-18, the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District is pleased to provide a nutritious and satisfying lunch program in collaboration with Choicelunch, our 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.LunchIsServed.com. If you had a Choicelunch account last year, your username, password, and any balance have been transferred to the new site. Parents and guardians who want their children to participate in the District’s lunch program must sign up and order at the website.  All lunch orders and payments must be made in advance through the District's online payment and ordering system.

We have not increased lunch prices this year.  For 2017-18 the cost of a standard lunch is still $5.50 at our Elementary Schools and $6.50 for a larger portion at Ralston.  The cost of a premium meal is $6.50.

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.

Sincerely,

Craig A. Goldman, Chief Business Official

The LunchMaster is coming in 2018-19

BRSSD will be moving to a new meal provider in 2018-19.  We are excited about our new partnership with The LunchMaster.  Information about menus and ordering will be made available by the end of July.

Families will be receiving refunds of any balances in their LunchIsServed accounts.  Where possible, we have already provided a credit back to the credit card used to fund the account.  For all others, the District will be issuing checks prior to the end of June.  For accounting purposes, we ask that you deposit or cash all checks no matter how small the amount might be.
