Breakfast & Lunch Menus

October 25, 2021

Parents and Guardians:

MPUSD proudly offers healthy, locally sourced, and made from scratch meals for students five days a week. We want to take an opportunity to update you on information from our Nutrition Services department.

We are pleased to share that this year the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District offers breakfasts and lunches to all students at no cost. As part of the new free meal offering, the district is required to offer all entrees, sides, and milk to students to receive funding from the state and federal governments. 

In recent weeks, parents and students have indicated that they would only like either an entree or side, or even just a milk. Unfortunately, by only offering part of the meal, the district is unable to receive reimbursement for the meal.

Moving forward we encourage your child to participate in the full meal program. We are working with school sites to explore other alternatives that can allow for the provision of additional food / snack options or to possibly "donate" unopened items your child may not be interested in eating.

We have also had students interested in taking more than one meal, which we are unable to provide. Per federal regulations, we are only able to offer one meal per meal period to each student. As we explore other options, it will allow those students who are still hungry to take advantage of additional food options.

Thank you for your assistance in supporting our Nutrition Services department, and encouraging your child to participate in the full meal offering.
