Lunch Program

RGSD Wellness Policy – It is the policy of the Riverview Gardens School District that all foods and beverages made available on campus during the school day are consistent with the Healthier Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 nutrition guidelines.  The District will create procedures that address all foods available to students throughout the school day in the following areas: 

  • National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program meals
  • A la carte offerings in the food service program
  • Vending machines and school stores
  • Classroom parties, celebrations, fundraisers, rewards and school events
  • Snacks served in after-school programs

Breakfast and Lunch:

Breakfast is free for all students and includes milk and juice.  Children may choose to eat breakfast at school.  If your child arrives late to school make sure he/she has already eaten a good breakfast. 

Meadows Elementary Breakfast Schedule:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday -> 7:40am-8:00am
Wednesday -> 8:40am-9:00am

Lunch is also free for all students.  Every student attending a school in the Riverview Gardens School District may receive a school lunch every day at no cost.  A student may bring a lunch from home if he/she chooses to do so.  Healthy eating habits are strongly encouraged.  Lunches of only candy and chips should not be brought to school.  Soda should not be sent to school either, unless a student is going on a field trip where lunches are being eaten away from school.  Lunch times will vary by school and grade.
