Food Service Program
At Acero, it is our goal to provide healthy, nutritionally balanced and creative meals for our students that not only provides them access to quality food but also options they enjoy. All Acero campuses participate in the School Breakfast Program (SBP) and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) which provide meals that meet or exceed the federal nutrition standards required by the USDA.
All Acero schools offer a breakfast option in the cafeteria for students who arrive early. Additionally, if students do not arrive on time for breakfast in the cafeteria, they can choose to participate in the Breakfast after the Bell program. Breakfast after the Bell gives students the opportunity to take a Grab & Go breakfast on their way to their first period class. Students can eat their Grab & Go breakfast in the classroom during early morning activities and will be ready for the start of instruction. Breakfast times are based on an individual school basis. Please contact your school for more information.
All Acero school lunches offer two main entrée options for students. Students have the ability to choose one of the main entrées along with a fruit, vegetable, whole grain-rich product and milk. Although participation in our programs is not mandatory, we do recommend all parents encourage their student to eat in school. We ask that parents who choose to provide their child with a lunch from home pack a healthy meal in an age-appropriate portion and refrain from providing foods, snacks or beverages with a minimal nutritional value such as chips, candy, gum or soda pop. Lunch times are based on an individual school basis. Please contact your school for more information.
