Our Brand Vision​​​​

Food is a big part of everyone's well-being, and students need a place to eat where they can connect with others, recharge, and enjoy a sense of happiness in their school. That's why we serve food kids love to eat and create programs that encourage fun and discovery.

Most importantly, we believe that happy cafeterias start with our people. So we empower them to go above and beyond to bring their personal “extra" for even more creativity and joy at meal-time.

Our goal every day is to make sure that students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than they came in.​​​

Free second-semester food service sign-up is available.

-Updated March 1, 2021

New registration is required

Beginning March 1, changes in food service will support students returning to full-time, in-person learning and those in the RCS Virtual campus. Two free options are available: daily breakfast and lunch onsite at schools and weekly curbside meal distribution.

The USDA approved a waiver effective August 31, 2020, that provides breakfast and lunch meals, free of charge, for all children 18 years of age and younger, including ATPS students 26 years of age and younger. Meals, which meet guidelines from the USDA and Michigan Department of Education, will be distributed through the Rochester Community Schools food service program.

FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH ONSITE. All students attending school in person can choose to have free breakfast and lunch, with no registration required, from their school cafeteria on regular school days. 

FREE CURBSIDE MEALS. Students participating in full-time in-person learning can receive free curbside meals distributed in 2-day increments. Students enrolled in RCS Virtual, or children under 18 not enrolled in in-person learning, can receive meals distributed in 7-day increments. 

NEW REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for all curbside meals beginning the week of March 1. All families who would like curbside meal service must complete a NEW registration form at this link: https://forms.gle/gDjMXCgsdf6VcjQg9. If you previously registered for curbside meals and no longer wish to participate, no further action is necessary.

Only one registration is required per family; information will be collected about each student’s home-school and learning environment. Breakfast and lunch meals will be distributed in 2- and 7-day increments. Students in elementary, secondary and ATPS programs may eat meals during school and also register for 2-day curbside food service. Students in RCS Virtual may register for 7-day curbside meals. We will accommodate families with children in all learning environments.

Curbside meal distribution for registered participants will begin after March 1 on Wednesdays between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. at your designated school site. PLEASE NOTE THIS TIME CHANGE due to full-time in-person learning in our school buildings.

Curbside pickup locations are:
1. Hart Middle School (serving Baldwin, Hugger, North Hill, Hart and Stoney Creek)

2. Rochester High School (serving Hamlin, Long Meadow, McGregor, Rochester High and ATPS)

3. Adams High School (serving Brewster, Delta Kelly, Musson, Van Hoosen and Adams)

4. Reuther Middle School (serving Brooklands, Hampton and Reuther)

5. West Middle School (serving Meadow Brook, University Hills and West)

If your student is new to the district or enrolled in the RCS Virtual Campus, please use the RCS boundary map to determine your home-school for pick-up. The link can be found here: https://www.rochester.k12.mi.us/about-us/directions-maps.

Free and reduced-price meal application. Families are encouraged to continue to fill out the online free and reduced-price meal application for the 2020-2021 school year. A new application is required at the beginning of each school year. If you have already applied for this year, no further action is needed.

Applications for this program also support the district beyond food service including Title I and 31a funding. The program also connects families to additional community resources including Blessings In a Backpack, Neighborhood House and possible individual support for district programs.
