Meal Distribution Schedule Updates for In-Person Learning
Nutrition Services will modify its curbside distribution schedule to one day per week, starting Monday, April 5 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at various school sites throughout the district. Free, curbside meals will be available to all enrolled SCUSD and associated charter students each Monday to cover their nutritional needs during their distance learning days. Beginning April 12, enrollment verification will be required to pick up meals for SCUSD students not present in the vehicle. Verification documents are being mailed to all Sac City Unified students. See a sample of the verification document here.
If you did not receive enrollment verification information in the mail, or via email, you may also provide a student ID, class schedule, report card, or school welcome letter to the food service personnel to receive free meals for your student(s).
Additionally, free meals will be offered to any child present in the vehicle (no enrollment verification required) during Monday’s curbside meal pick-up. Learn more.

FAQs on Meal Distribution
Starting April 8 and 9, students engaged in-person learning will be able to take “grab and go” lunch and breakfast for the next day home each day. Meal distribution models vary by school site.
Can students pick up meals on campus every day, regardless of their cohort assignment?
No. Students will receive meals via curbside meal distribution on Mondays, and meals will be provided to students on campus during their assigned cohort days.
Students in grades 4-6 and secondary students can pick up meals curbside on Mondays until their campus returns to in-person learning. Once they return to in-person learning, they can continue to pick up meals curbside on Mondays and meals will be available to students on-campus on their assigned cohort days.
Meal Services for students enrolled in Learning Hubs will not be impacted by these changes.
My student is assigned to Cohort A. What days can he/she receive meals?
Cohort A — Curbside meals will be available on Mondays at 57 school sites from 11 am – 1 pm to cover nutritional needs for students during distance learning days. Students will also receive to-go breakfast and lunch on campus on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Cohort B — Curbside meals will be available on Mondays at 57 school sites from 11 am – 1 pm to cover nutritional needs for students during distance learning days. Students will also receive to-go breakfast and lunch on campus on Thursdays and Fridays.
Cohort C — Curbside meals will be available on Mondays only at 57 school sites from 11 am – 1 pm to cover nutritional needs during all five distance learning days.
Are students required to be present to receive meals during Monday’s curbside meal pick up?
Students are not required to be present to receive curbside meals if the parent/guardian can provide food service personnel enrollment verification that their student(s) is enrolled in SCUSD or associated charter school. If the child is not enrolled in SCUSD or associated charter school, the child must be present in the vehicle in order to receive free meals.
I didn’t receive my enrollment verification document in the mail. What should I do?
Enrollment verification letters were sent via US mail to all enrolled students starting March 31. Letters were also sent via email on April 5th and 6th. If you have not received this information, you can provide other enrollment documents such as Student ID, class schedule, report card, school welcome letter, etc. Food service personnel will also be able to verify your student’s enrollment status if you can provide a student ID number, or student first and last name during curbside pick up. You can also call our Nutrition Office at 916-395-5600 and they can provide you with a letter.
My student is attending in-person learning 2 days per week. Do students need to show enrollment verification to receive meals on campus?
No. The enrollment verification letters are for Monday, curbside meal service only. Students who are on campus, attending in-person learning on their assigned cohort days are enrolled, and will not need to show enrollment verification to receive meals during their assigned cohort days.
