The Rochester School District is proud to partner with Sodexo to offer quality child nutrition programs. Students have shown they are more productive at learning when they are free from hunger and are well nourished.

For the convenience of families, breakfast and lunch are offered at all schools. During meal service, students may enjoy food brought from home or made right at their school cafeteria.

The Rochester School District will serve meals at NO CHARGE to all children through USDA’s National School Lunch Program Seamless Summer Option (SSO) during the 2021-22 school year!

The SSO maintains the nutrition standards of the standard school meal programs – including a strong emphasis on providing fruits and vegetables, fluid milk, whole grains, and sensible calorie levels, while allowing schools to serve meals to all children at no charge. The continuation of this flexibility, which was first implemented at the beginning of the pandemic, is part of the federal government’s plan to reopen schools safely.

We expect a return to normal meal service in the 2022-23 school year and previous district meal charging policies will be reinstated.

Families are still encouraged to complete an application for free or reduced lunches, as eligibility for free or reduced lunches can help provide potential new funding for your school.
