Welcome to RCS Food Service Department



Welcome Families of Richmond Community Schools to the 2021-2022 School Year!

We are ecstatic to inform you that Richmond Community Schools will be participating in the Seamless Summer Option as part of our National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs for the 2021-2022 School year.  The great news is that all enrolled students will receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE at school or at our Virtual Meal Pickup.

 Richmond Community Schools received notice that we are able to extend our Summer Food Service Program until further notice. This allows the District to provide breakfast and lunch to in-person and virtual/online students at no cost to minimize the financial challenges to families during the pandemic.

Menu information for in-person breakfasts and lunches are shown below.  There is also a section below for menus, ordering, and pick-up information for breakfasts and lunches for virtual/online students.

For all students, please continue to submit applications for free and reduced meal benefits. Approved applications may provide additional food benefits to families and additional grant funding for the District and our community.

Applications may be made on-line at familyportal.cloud, or paper applications are available at each school office.  The website, 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 familyportal.cloud.  Applications received during food service office hours are processed immediately, or the morning following receipt for applications received after hours.

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


Sincerely,
Katherine Guiney

For more information, call 1-855-846-8376 or visit http://www.internetessentials.com

District Charging Policy

Although it is the primary responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide their child a lunch, whether it is brought from home or funds to purchase one, Richmond Community Schools, will not refuse a student from receiving a lunch due to a lack of funds.

Students who did not bring a lunch from home or funds to purchase a lunch will be allowed up to one (1) lunch credit (e.g. negative balance) on their school meals account and will be served the lunch entrée for the day. Students with accounts that continue to have a negative balance will be provided an alternative lunch and charged appropriately. The Food Service Department will be responsible for contacting families with a negative balance.

It is Richmond Community School's expectation for parent/guardians to remit funds on the next business day to clear up any negative balances on the student's school meals account. Any and all negative balances will have an adverse effect on the district's overall General Fund and may result in the district seeking legal action, if appropriate.

Free and reduced meal benefit applications are accepted throughout the school year. Applications may also be submitted at FamilyPortal.cloud. A link to the website is available on the Food Service Page of the Richmond Community Schools website at www. richmond.k12.mi.us.

Deposits may also be made to a student's school meals account at SendMoneytoSchool.com and eFunds for Schools. Parents will need the student's ID number to sign up. The ID number may be obtained from the school office or by calling the Food Service Department at (586) 727-3565. It is free to sign up, monitor student activity, limit snack purchases and establish a daily spending limit.  Deposits made to a student's account are charged a service fee by the service provider. A link to the website is also available on the Food Service Page of the Richmond Community Schools website.
