Providing healthy meals is a top priority of the Tempe Elementary School District. Our dedicated staff prepares nutritious breakfasts and lunches at all of our schools every school day.
This school year the breakfast program is free of charge for all students. Research confirms that students who eat breakfast have more energy, more focus, and fewer classroom behavioral issues. Removing barriers to eating breakfast supports the academic success of all of our students! Students who come through the breakfast line and take a full breakfast meal will receive that meal at no charge.
This program is paid for by the Nutrition Services Department, which is federally funded and self-supporting. This program does not impact dollars going into the classroom.
An a la carte carton of milk cost of $0.50. Breakfast for non-students such as teachers, parents, and young siblings is available for $2.25.

Meal Charges for lunch accounts with insufficient funds
When students come through the lunch line but do not have enough money, they will still receive a regular meal of their choice and their account will be charged. We will always feed a student. This will create a negative balance.
Parents/guardians will be contacted for prompt repayment. Contact will be through automated phone calls from School Messenger (1-855-344-6333). Notification letters will also be sent home with students in grades K-5. Repayment of funds will first be applied to the negative balance before being applied to future meal purchases.
Account charges will not be permitted for á la carte items such as milk, bottled water, or other single food items made available for purchase.
