We recognize that nutrition impacts classroom performance, so we prepare our breakfast and lunch menus to provide both appeal and proper nutrition to our students. Our Food Services Department works to ensure our students get all of the necessary nutrients associated with good health, clear thinking, and a balanced diet.
Free Breakfast & Lunch Program
Richwoods R-VII School District participates in the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, a free breakfast and lunch program. Through this program, all students enrolled in this school are eligible to receive school breakfast and lunch at no charge. We do not collect household applications for free and reduced price meals.
Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing breakfast/lunch to all children at no charge, we can create a better learning environment for our students. The school breakfasts and lunches we serve follow U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals.
This free breakfast and lunch program cannot succeed without your support. Please encourage your children to participate every school day.
