Acero Schools

Food Service Program

Overview
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.
 
For the 2017-2018 school year, we will continue participation under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Under the CEP program, all Acero students are provided both breakfast and lunch at no cost. No paperwork is required from families for students to participate in breakfast and/or lunch.
 
For questions, comments or feedback, please email us at foodservice@aceroschools.org.
 
Breakfast
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.
Congrats to Arabella, a first-grade student at our Octavio Paz Campus, for winning 1st place in the National School Breakfast Week artwork contest that was hosted earlier this month. Arabella said her favorite breakfast items are egg whites and she also likes to eat breakfast with her friends at the table. Great job, Arabella!

Lunch
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.
