All Alum Rock Students will continue to receive breakfast and lunch meals at “no cost” for the school year 2019-2020 through the alternative program – Provision 2. Schools participating are: Adelante I, Adelante II, Aptitud, Arbuckle, Cassell, Chavez, Cureton, Dorsa, Fischer, Renaissance at Fischer, George, Hubbard, Linda Vista, LUCHA, Lyndale, Mathson, Renaissance at Mathson, McCollam, Meyer, Ocala, Painter, Russo/McEntee, Ryan, San Antonio, and Sheppard.

This program has been in place since 2004. Because we don’t collect or request income information, from families whose students attend Provision 2 schools, we are not able to confirm eligibility status for programs outside of the meal program.   We are not able to provide parents with a letter stating that they qualify for “free” meals.

Alum Rock Child Nutrition Program sponsors the following schools for breakfast, lunch and supper meals:

- DCP and KIPP Prize will receive meals at no cost through Provision 2 program

- KIPP Heartwood is in the process of collecting meal applications to determine their students eligibility as free, reduced or paid meal prices and set its base year for Provision 2.

For students participating in an After-School program also receive a super snack supper meal at "no cost" through the Child and Adult Care Food Program.


The mission of the Child Nutrition Services Department is to enhance the health status and nutrition education of all students within the Alum Rock Union Elementary School District.


Our purpose is to serve all students safe, nutritious, and appealing school meals that meet the USDA nutritional requirements.

As we all know breakfast is an important meal of the day, this meal enhances student learning.  At Alum Rock we offer breakfast in different ways,  before school, second chance or at brunch and even in the classroom. 

Check out the Benefits Breakfast Provides your student:

Higher Test Scores. Research has proven that children who eat breakfast have a higher math and reading scores.

Fewer Trips to the School Nurse. When students eat breakfast, nurses report fewer hunger related office visits.

Improved Classroom Behavior. Students are better able to pay attention in class when they have eaten. Principals confirm that they see fewer discipline problems when students have eaten breakfast.

-Better Learning. Students learn best when they have eaten a good breakfast.


Should you have any questions or just want to say "Hi", please reach out to us.
