Food Service 2020-21 

The Pollock Pines Food Service Team is very excited about returning to a full day schedule, and looking forward to the opportunity to prepare and serve meals for Pinewood and Sierra Ridge students.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended several important waivers and flexibilitiesThese flexibilities allow us to provide meals to all students at no charge through September 2021.    

This announcement is great news to our school meal program and the community we serve.  Many of our families who may not qualify for free meals will have one less thing to worry about, with meals provided for their students as they adjust to the new full-day schedule.  These waivers also eliminate administrative burdens from our staff, allowing them to focus on feeding children.  By providing meals to all children, this helps our district financially, and nutritionally for our students.

Beginning on Monday, March 22, our Food Service staff will prepare and serve breakfast and lunch for students to eat on site during their scheduled meal periods.

If you generally fill out an application for free/reduced price meals, please submit your application.  In addition to meal services, much of the funding for our school is predicated on our student population, and recognizing those students who qualify for free/reduced status helps the district to maximize funding and provide additional services to our children.    

We are happy to provide this wonderful opportunity for all of our families.
