Breakfast & Lunch Info
Two Rivers is proud to provide nutritious and tasty meals through the school breakfast and school lunch program. Because we don’t have a cafeteria, we order these meals in individual serving packages from a catering company, who prepares the meals fresh daily. We strive to be family-friendly in the meal service by offering options such as milk-only, dairy-free and vegetarian meals in addition to regular breakfast and lunch meal offerings. Families interested in ordering lunch must order meals no later than Monday at 5PM in order to receive lunch the following week, as our meals are pre-ordered weekly. Monthly meal menus and order forms are available in the main office.
Families who are eligible for free or reduced price lunch under the National School Lunch Program will receive lunch each day. However, even if you qualify for free or reduced lunch you must still sign up for the meal at the front desk. We encourage all families to apply and take advantage of this program if you qualify. The school must have a completed application form for the National School Lunch Program on file for a child to receive free meals. Breakfast is offered to all students. The DC Healthy Schools Act requires that all DC public and public charter schools provide free breakfast to students. Lunch is available for purchase for all children.
We want lunch to be an enjoyable, community- building time that provides an opportunity for sharing in small groups. All students will eat lunch in their classrooms and will participate in the set up, serving, and cleanup of the meal. As part of our commitment to developing healthy choices and modeling good eating habits, we encourage all families to send in healthful food for their children’s meals. We ask that sweets are brought to school only for special occasions and that candy is removed from Lunchables and other prepackaged food items. Students are not allowed to bring candy or soda to school.
