Free and Reduced Lunch Program

  • We participate in the State and Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. This year we are pleased to announce that we will continue to operate as Provision 2 !  Provision 2 allows us to feed all students enrolled in our schools for free.  Click on the link below to read the media release for more information.  Newly Enrolled Families are required to submit an Alternative Household Income Form for participation.  Meal Forms should be turned into your child's school office.  You can download a copy of the Meal Forms below.

Cooking on Site

  • As many small districts had done to save money and focus on core subjects BUSD outsourced their breakfast and lunch preparation to a larger district, food was made elsewhere and prepped onsite. Even larger districts had centralized their cooking and only prepped at school sites to streamline and save money.

    Through the first LCAP process in 2013-14 the BUSD School Board and community decided making food on site at the schools was a priority worth investing in. The functioning prep kitchens had to be upgraded to current commercial kitchen standards, much like your home kitchen, while adequate for preparing dinner for your family would not be appropriate for catering meals for 400 school children. 
     
    Bellevue Elementary was selected as a test case. In 2014 the kitchen at Bellevue was upgraded, re-licensed, a cook hired and the school year started with a new, in house, menu (including school garden ingredients when possible) and lauded as a success. The kitchen at Meadow View followed in 2015 and Taylor Mountain in 2016. The goal had been to renovate the kitchen at Kawana Springs next in 2017, but renovation was rescheduled due to unforeseen maintenance projects, infrastructure requirements, as well as budget constraints.  The kitchen at Kawana is part of the current Maintenance & Operations 3-5 year Facility Plan. Necessary plumbing/sewer infrastructure upgrades where completed summer 2020, with architecture plans completed summer 2021, and the demolition of the existing Kawana cafeteria scheduled for summer of 2022.
