Child Nutrition Information
A Message from the Child Nutrition Department 1/10/22
We know the importance of school meals in fueling both healthy minds and bodies. Even though school meals may look a little different now, please know that your school nutrition team is working hard to ensure students have safe, nutritious, and appealing meals. We are working daily to overcome shortages of food, supplies, and labor challenges so that students can continue to receive school meals.
At times, our school district may not receive expected food and supply orders due to labor shortages (such as delivery drivers) and limited product availability (for example, discontinued products or not enough of a specific type of product). As a result, your school may need to make last-minute changes to the menu or substitute a different brand of a food product, or method of serving the meal items. We also know that students have favorite menu items and are working hard to provide them whenever possible. We are also thinking ahead to identify alternative food items that are nutritious and appealing for the students.
Your patience is appreciated as we continue to work through these current challenges.
A Message from the Child Nutrition Department
Rockwall ISD announces its policy today that this school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. Each school/site or the central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed upon request.
While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.
Meal applications are available for those households who may qualify for P-EBT benefits. Please click on the SchoolCafe link below or visit your cafeteria for a paper application.
For more information, visit hhs.texas.gov/pebt (English) or hhs.texas.gov/es/pebt (Spanish), or call the P-EBT Call Center at 833-442-1255, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Central time.
