Food Service Program
At Acero, it is our goal to provide healthy, nutritionally balanced and creative meals for our scholars that not only provide them access to quality food but also options they enjoy. We are pleased to inform you that all Acero Schools will be continuing participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2022-2023 school year. Through the CEP program, all Acero scholars have access to a healthy, well-balanced breakfast and lunch at no cost
Acero partners with OrganicLife Smartfood Service as our food service management company. You can learn more about OrganicLife by visiting their website, www.organiclifeusa.com.
All of our school meals meet nutritional guidelines and requirements as required by the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP). Our meals include a daily serving of fruit, vegetable, whole grain-rich products, and milk. Although participation in our programs is not mandatory, we do recommend all parents to encourage your student to eat a school breakfast and lunch. Both breakfast and lunch menus will be provided to all families each month via the school communications and will also be available on our website.
