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, and we prepare the meals 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 according to the Meal Payment Schedule.

All students eligible for Free and Reduced meals will be guaranteed access to breakfast and lunch, Monday through Friday for free. During distance learning, families will be expected to come on-site weekly to pick-up a 5-day meal kit per student. Each kit will comprise the reimbursable components of a National School Lunch Program (NSLP) breakfast and lunch. During any hybrid model which compromises in-person and distance learning, in-person students will receive meals on-site and be given take-home meal kits for distance learning days. We encourage all families to apply and take advantage of this program if you qualify. The school must have a completed application form (in English or Spanish) 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.

Lunchtime Philosophy

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.
