Free to ALL children in our community 18 and younger




USDA and the Oregon Department of Education has approved the Estacada School District to offer free meals to ALL students in the 2021-2022 school year. Below are the updated program changes:

  • Only one breakfast and one lunch will be offered free daily

  • Second daily meals will be charged to the student's accounts for a regular breakfast or lunch meal fee

  • If a student selects only a milk without a full meal, they must pay $.55 (Milk alone is not offered for free).

  • Only children enrolled in the Estacada School District will be offered free meals

  • If a student is attending a school in the Estacada School District, but is learning from home for various reasons, they will need to notify their school's secretary to sign up for bus meal delivery.

  • We encourage families to continue to fill out the annual free and reduced meal application. If eligible, the family may have a reduction in fees for other school programs and it helps the District in receiving educational grants.

What Makes Nutrition Services Different at Estacada School District

The Estacada Nutrition Services staff is dedicated in providing students' healthy meals meeting their nutritional needs which better enables their ability to learn.

Students dining in our cafeterias enjoy menus comprised of "home-made" recipes as we strive to use as little highly processed foods as possible. More locally grown fruits and vegetables are served, as well as, whole grain rich breads and pizza crust.

During the current pandemic, the Nutrition Services staff teamed up with our Transportation department to continue serving meals when our buildings have been closed. Meals served through our bus delivery program are quite different than served in our cafeterias. Both breakfast and lunch meals are mainly comprised of cold items that are intended to be heated at home, and continues to focus on meeting the necessary nutrients for our students health.

All meals served at our dining facilities and through our bus delivery, follow state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.
