We are thrilled to be back serving your child for the 2021-2022 school year! After adapting our service last year for meals, we’re ready to serve all students and grade levels in the cafeteria. Owen J Roberts will be participating in a Seamless Summer Option (SSO) in the 2021-2022 school year.
Breakfast and Lunch is FREE for ALL Students in the 2021-2022 School Year!
Thanks to flexibilities provided by the USDA’s National School Lunch Program, students will have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast and lunch at no cost throughout the academic year.
Although free and reduced meal applications are not required, we are highly encouraging families to continue to fill out free/reduced meal applications.
Free and Reduced Meal Applications
Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who qualify. To apply please complete an application by visiting www.schoolcafe.com or obtain a paper application from the school office(s). For the school year 2021-2022, the grace period for free and reduced applications has been extended to October 15, 2021. Please make sure to reapply before this deadline.
Enrolled Cyber Students
All Owen J Roberts enrolled cyber students are eligible to receive meals for free. More information and details will be sent regarding pick up day and time for distribution.
Food Kids Love to Eat
Be on the look out for surveys throughout the school year as we develop the menus! The Food Service Advisory Board meets regularly, involving students, parents, faculty and adminstation of Owen J Roberts. Meeting minutes will be available on the website.
Special Dietary Needs
If a student has a food allergy or medical condition, parents must send a written doctor’s note to the school nurse. For dietary substitutions, federal regulations require students to have a written doctor’s note. The nurse will forward this information to food service personnel. This information will be entered into the POS so that the cashier may be discretely alerted once the student’s ID number has been entered. Should a student need a special dietary menu to meet their needs, please schedule a meeting with the food service director at (610) 469-5127.
All parent requests should be updated annually for student requirements or restrictions that do not require a doctor’s note. To do this, parents must notify the food service offices at 610-469-5701.
