Nutritionally balanced meals are served daily for breakfast and lunch. During lunch students have the opportunity to choose from several different menu items. Each day a main entree is offered. Students may choose this or they may opt to purchase items from the A-La-Carte window. Along with the main course entree, a salad bar is always available along with various fruits and vegetables.
Hesperia Community Schools offers Universal Breakfast to all students. All HCS students are able to eat breakfast at no charge.
In addition to a free breakfast, all students will receive a free lunch!
The Community Eligible Provision (CEP) is a State and Federal funded program that allows all students both breakfast and lunch for no costs to families.
There are no longer free & reduced priced meal forms to fill out that pertain to income. The only thing parents have to do is to fill out the Household Information Form (below). These forms are critical for us to receive all of our State and Federal funding for our students. All information included on these forms is confidential. Forms can be returned to the school office or directly to Dana Gierzak, Food Service Director.
Meals are also available on the weekends which makes it 7 days a week for meal distribution!
This program will likely begin Friday, October 16 and last through the end of December or until the USDA depletes program funding and allows us to distribute meals on the weekends to our families. For more information, please contact our food service director for more information.
We no longer accept credit card payments through Sendmoneytoschool.com. Please send cash or a check made out to Hesperia Hot Lunch with your child.
