St. DavidUnified School District #21

Food Services

Our purpose is to provide our students with nutritious meals in a pleasant surrounding. We are committed to delivering high quality, nutritious meals to our students.

We prepare our lunch menus to provide both appeal and proper nutrition to our students. The variety of our menus ensures that our students get all of the necessary nutrients and other substances associated with good health, clear thinking, and a balanced diet. We teach the importance of nutritious meals while encouraging good eating habits. We recognize that nutrition impacts classroom performance, so our menus and food preparation is designed to teach health wellness. We also encourage parents to help their children to eat healthy, nutritious foods both at school and at home. To see what we are doing to accomplish this, we invite you to read the district's student wellness policy.

For information on our district policy for meal charges, please see our school lunch policy.

We would love your input! If you have any recipe ideas or suggestions please email Jennifer Lopshire.

Summer Food Program Extended

August 18, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Due to the pandemic, the Arizona Department of Education, in conjunction with USDA, has extended the Summer Foods Program through June 30, 2022. What this means is every student, regardless of their eligibility status, will receive free lunch for the entire school year.

Even though your student has the option to pick up a free lunch, you are still encouraged to fill out the Free/Reduced lunch form. The amount of qualifying students can really help our school receive funding for many programs. Also, if USDA should decide to continue disbursing P-EBT funds, this form is how you will qualify. If a SY2021-2022 application is not on file, you will not receive any of these emergency funds. Current applications were sent home the first week of school with the student information packet. If you need an application, please contact the school office, Jennifer Lopshire at (520) 720-4781 ext. 141, or find it on this page.

In addition to enrolled students receiving a free lunch, this also applies to any child not enrolled in school. This program applies to any child ages 0 to 18 and does not have to be part of the St David School District. Meals may be picked up by a parent/guardian Monday-Thursday in the cafeteria from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. There will NOT be curbside pick up available this year on Friday and no lunch service on non-instructional days (holidays/breaks).

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.

Thank You,

Jennifer Lopshire
