Child Nutrition

Rockdale ISD will provide free breakfast and lunch to all in-person students at no charge for the entire 2021-2022 school year! Please note: The free and reduced meal application is still required to receive federal benefits such as P-EBT, etc.

Free Breakfast & Lunch for the 2021–22 School Year

Thanks to a waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rockdale ISD will once again offer free breakfast and lunch to all students beginning Wednesday, August 18, 2021. 

All free meals will include: one entrée, one choice of milk, and the student’s choice of fruit and vegetables at both breakfast and lunch. Items not included in the free benefits include second meals, additional entrees and milk, and any à la carte snack items. Menus, service standards, and à la carte items will still be available. 

There are several options for families who have meal balances in their account:

  • Leave balance in the account to purchase à la carte items (recommended) Rockdale ISD does not allow a la carte items to be charged.
  • Allow the remaining balance to roll over to next year.
  • Request a refund by following the instructions under “Request a Refund.”

The National School Lunch and Breakfast Program at Rockdale ISD is planned and managed by Southwest Food Service Excellence LLC. We take pride in providing Rockdale students with well-balanced, nutritious meals.

In compliance with the National School Lunch Program, applications for free and reduced-priced meals are available in the front office of each school. Please follow the application directions carefully so your application can be processed quickly. If you have more than one child attending RISD schools, combine their names on one application form.

If you received free/reduced-priced meals last year, your children will continue to receive meal benefits the first 30 days of school. During that time, a new application must be completed for free/reduced meals to continue.

Students can pay for their meals using cash or by deducting it from their food service account. To deposit funds into a child's account, send cash or a check made out to Rockdale ISD.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the child nutrition program at Rockdale ISD, please contact Sheri Wheeler at [email protected]
