Welcome to Child Nutrition Services
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Roosevelt School District Meal Distribution
Changes to Food Distribution
Beginning Monday, March 22, the following changes to food distribution will take effect:
All food distribution bus routes will be discontinued
The last day for mobile food distribution routes will be Friday, March 19. Food distribution will be served on-site to students attending schools on their assigned days (Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday). There will be no curbside pickup or visitors allowed on campus for meal service on those days.
Curbside pickup will only be available once per week
Curbside pickup will be Wednesdays from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Students and children under 18 can pick up five days’ worth of meals. All sites will be open for curbside pickup except for Houston, Kennedy and King. Houston and Kennedy families will pick up meals at C.O. Greenfield School. King families will pick up meals at Percy L. Julian School.
Additionally, our nearby Phoenix Union High School District is also implementing a Grab-and-Go Meals service for students from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. for breakfast and 11 a.m. to Noon for lunch. For more information visit the Phoenix Union Food Distribution Web Page

Community Eligibility Provision
We are pleased to inform you that our district will be implementing a new provision available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
What does this mean for you and your child(ren)?
All enrolled students in our school district, regardless of income level, are eligible to receive a healthy school breakfast and school lunch at no charge each day. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.
The CEP is a new alternative to the traditional meal application process associated with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. CEP alleviates the burden on families by eliminating household applications, while helping schools reduce costs associated with collecting and procesing those applications.
For more information about CEP, please visit USDA.gov/school-meals/communityeligibility-provision
