Curbside Meals & Free/Reduced Lunch Applications During Distance Learning
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has reversed its decision and will once again allow school districts to offer curbside meals for free this school year. This will make it possible for Duarte Unified to once again provide all children who are 18 years old and under a breakfast and lunch combination daily. Children do not have to be in the car at the time of pick-up and the monthly menu options, locations, and times for service previously provided will stay the same as listed below:
Meals will be distributed Monday - Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. except for major holidays. You will be notified in advance as to the days of curbside meals service closure.
Andres Duarte Arts Academy (1433 Crestfield Drive, Duarte, CA 91010)
Maxwell Academy - IB World School (733 Euclid Avenue, Duarte, CA 91010)
Royal Oaks STEAM Academy (2499 Royal Oaks Drive, Bradbury, CA 91008)
Parents can pick up meals from the location that is the most convenient for them.
FREE/REDUCED LUNCH APPLICATIONS SHOULD STILL BE SUBMITTED
Even though meals will be provided for free, we ask that all of our qualifying families still submit free/reduced lunch applications. This helps our district receive federal funding for programs for our schools.
To do so, please follow the directions below:
Online Free & Reduced Meal Applications: Online applications are available at www.schoolcafe.com.
Paper Free & Reduced Meal Applications: Forms are available at each food distribution location to be turned in curbside during meal distribution hours.
If you have any questions, please contact our Food Services Team at (626) 599-5022/(626) 599-5023 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
