Enrollment Verification for Curbside Meals Required Starting April 12
Starting on April 12, families will need to show enrollment verification documents to receive curbside meals. Verification documents were mailed to all Sac City Unified students beginning on March 31. Students do not need to be present for parents/guardians to pick up meals. See a sample of the verification document here.
Meals will be provided at no cost to enrolled SCUSD or associated charter students. Additionally, free meals will be provided to any child present in the vehicle during curbside distribution that is not enrolled in SCUSD or associated charter school.
In-Person Learning Student Meals
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.

FAQs on Meal Distribution
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. Please see the chart below.
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.
|Cohort Assignment||Meal Pick-up Days|
|Cohort A||Curbside meals will be available on Mondays 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.|
Curbside meals will be available on Mondays 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 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. If you have not received this letter, 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.
How were families notified of this change?
Nutrition Services provided information at meal sites over the last two weeks and a letter was sent notifying families that enrollment documents would be required for SCUSD students.
