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, Two Rivers will continue to serve meals on Saturdays until October 10, 2020. Following October 10, DC Public Schools (DCPS) will offer no cost meals to all DC youth ages 18 and under at 47 schools across the District. During this period, youth are not required to be enrolled in DC Public Schools to receive meals. Youth and or parents/guardians on their behalf may receive up to 3 breakfast and 3 lunch meals daily. The meal sites will operate through December 31st, 2020. DCPS meal sites can be found here.

Lunchtime Philosophy

During any hybrid model which compromises in-person and distance learning, in-person students will receive meals on-site and should report to their neighborhood DCPS to receive meals when they are not on-site. 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 students.
