Welcome to RCS Food Service Department

Welcome Richmond Community Schools Families to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Studies have consistently shown that eating a healthy breakfast every morning contributes to maintaining a healthy weight and improving academic performance. A recent analysis of third-party studies and public data conducted by Deloitte for “Ending Childhood Hunger: A Social Impact Analysis” shows that food insecurity in early childhood is associated with impaired brain development, lower academic achievement and more frequent hospitalizations. School breakfast can have a potentially dramatic effect on students. On average, students who eat school breakfast have been shown to achieve 17.5% higher scores in standardized math tests, attend 1.5 more days of school per year, are 20% more likely to graduate from high school and typically earn $10,090 more per year with a 4% higher employment rate after graduation. These factors can create transformative, positive change for our students. A student eating a healthy school breakfast tends to do better in school and attend class more frequently, which leads to greater job-readiness and self-sufficiency after high school. These students, therefore, are set a on a path to become less likely to struggle with hunger and obesity as adults.

Richmond Community Schools offer healthy breakfast options at each building. At Lee Elementary, breakfast is served from 7:30 – 7:55 am each school day. Richmond Middle School serves breakfast from 7:20 – 7:45 am each school day. At Richmond High School, breakfast is available from 7:15 – 10:00 am each school day (on 1/2 days of school, breakfast is available until 7:45). We encourage all students to take part in the school breakfast program to ensure they are maximizing their learning potential.

Lee Elementary students may purchase breakfast for $1.75 and lunch for $2.75. Richmond Middle School students may purchase breakfast for $2.00 and lunch for $3.00. Richmond High School students may purchase breakfast for $2.00 and lunch for $3.25. Students qualifying for reduced meal benefits may purchase a breakfast at any school for $.30 and a lunch at any school for $.40. Application for free and reduced meal benefits can be made on-line at www.LunchApp.com. Paper applications are available at each school office and cafeteria. www.LunchApp.com is the quickest, safest and most secure way to apply for meal benefits. Only the Director of Food Service sees applications submitted through www.LunchApp.com and the applications received during food service office hours are processed immediately. Those received off hours are processed on the first business morning following receipt.

Richmond Community Schools continues to provide parents with two options for making deposits to a student’s lunch account; e-funds for Schools and SendMoneytoSchool.com. Both sites provide for free signup and will only assess fees when deposits are made. The fees are the same with both providers and more information about fees is available on the service’s website. The link for e-funds for Schools is https://eps.mvpbanking.com/cgi-bin/efs/login.pl?access=55665. A link for both services is also available on the Food Service page of the district website at www.Richmond.k12.mi.us, select Food Services from the Quick Links on the main page.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have regarding our school meals program.

Sincerely,

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs. While Richmond Community Schools does not offer a SFSP, you may still be eligible to participate in a nearby program. Please visit www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks to locate a SFSP near you.
