Lunch Menu

Meals served at all schools in the RISD
will be free for the 2021-22 school year


Children need healthy meals to help them in the learning process and all of our schools offer healthy meals every day. We would like to serve as many children as possible and encourage you to consider applying for free or reduced meals. Below are our meal prices for this year, along with information regarding free or reduced meals.


My MealTime

Rivendell Interstate School District has partnered with My MealTime, a fast, secure online service for making credit or debit card deposits and monitoring your student’s lunch account. You may also be able to make other school payments such as sports/activities fees, yearbook purchases, library fines, fundraisers and more.


Ala carte prices are posted at all schools.


Dear Parent/Guardian:

Children need healthy meals to learn. Rivendell Academy, Samuel Morey Elementary and Westshire Elementary offer healthy meals every school day. In School Year 2021-2022, all children will receive free breakfast, lunch, and after school snack (if your school offers this program) regardless of your household income eligibility. It is still very important for families to submit the Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals to track our community’s Free and Reduced Percentage. Filling out and returning the application may help your family, the school, and community at large, qualify for other financial assistance. P-EBT benefits to your household, grant funds for the school, and telecom reimbursements for the community are just a few examples of the benefits of having higher Free and Reduced percentages. This packet includes an application for free or reduced price meal benefits and a set of detailed instructions. Below are some common questions and answers to help you with the application process. These Q & A’s were written in the context of normal school year breakfast and lunch operations. Again, this year all students can receive free breakfast and lunch through the school meals program.

We strongly encourage you to fill out the free/reduced meal form that will come home with your child(ren) on the first day of school, as your child(ren) may qualify. It only takes a few moments to fill out and I am available if you need any help filling out the form. Please remember that we cannot approve an incomplete application, so be sure to fill out all required information. Return the completed application to your school office. All information is kept confidential. The great thing is that the benefit lasts through the entire school year.

Here is some more information to help you apply for free or reduced meals:

  • Do I need to fill out an application for each child?
    No, use one Free and Reduced Price School MealsApplication for all students in your household, even if they go to different schools in the District. For example, Susie in 1st grade at Westshire and Bobby in 6th grade at the Middle School would go on oneapplication.
  • Who should I include as members of my household?
    You must include all people living in your household, related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives, or friends). You must also include yourself and all children who live with you.
  • What if my income is not always the same? List the amount that you normally receive. For example, if you normally receive $1,000 each month, but you missed some work last month and only received $900, put down that you receive $1,000 per month.


Our Food Service Team is happy to serve you. Suzanne Ricker is the Food Service Manager at Samuel Morey, Viola Farrar is the Food Service Manager at Westshire Elementary, and Jean Dyke is the RA Assistant Cook, with me at Rivendell Academy.

If you have any questions or need help filling out the application, please do not hesitate to call me at 603-353-4321, ext.121 or email me at Celise Johnson . I will be happy to assist you.

Sincerely,
Celise Johnson
