In Rockwood, we are proud to provide our students with healthy meals every school day. According to Carmen Fischer, director child nutrition services, all Rockwood students have access to healthy meals. "If students do not have adequate funds in their account, they will receive a balanced meal that includes a variety of protein, grains, fruits, vegetables and dairy," shares Fischer.
The USDA identifies this as a reimbursable lunch when children select at least three of the five items offered, with one selection being a fruit or vegetable.
New this year, Rockwood families may donate to the Random Acts of Kindness program to help pay for school meals for a child in need.
"Throughout the year, we hear from families who want to donate funds for a specific child, school or our Rockwood program," shared Fischer. "To meet this request, we have created a new option."
Families using the MySchoolBucks secured, online payment system may donate online through their established account. You'll see a Random Acts of Kindness option where funds may be donated to the program. (Please note that MySchoolBucks online fees for meal payments also apply to donations.)
If you have questions about the program or want to learn more about other donation options, please contact Rockwood Child Nutrition at (636) 733-3250.
