School Nutrition at ROC Achieve Charter School

Schools across the county are finding that more children start the day with school breakfast when they move it out of the cafeteria and after the first bell, making it an integral part of the school day. These new services models make breakfast participation convenient by serving it in places where children can easily access the meal – in classrooms, hallways, or even later in the morning.

At ROC Schools we believe in supporting the nutritional health and wellness of our students and have implemented a Breakfast in the Classroom Model. We participate in the USDA National Lunch Program, providing students with Breakfast, Lunch, and Snacks daily. In addition, ROC Schools offer “Universal Breakfast”, which provides FREE Breakfast to all students, regardless of eligibility.

— Breakfast & lunch are provided by Sarkis Catering. Menus can be found in the Main Office and under the “About” tab of this site.
