Meal Program and Policies
Meal Program and Policies
It is incredibly important that our students eat healthy meals to be fueled for the day! Countless studies show that with better nutrition, students are better able to learn, have fewer absences, have behavioral improvements, and achieve more academically.
Our daily breakfast and lunch are provided by LunchMaster in California and Fresh N Local in Washington. These organizations follow the strict regulations of the National School Lunch Program.
Summit Meal Charge Policy
All Summit families are asked to complete a meal eligibility application every year. Families can find assistance with applying for free or reduced price school meals by contacting the front office.
For families who don’t qualify for free and reduced price school meals, Summit charges meals at the time of service and sends invoices homes to families at the beginning of every month. Payment for balances is expected by the end of the month and can be made by check, cash or online using a credit card.
Summit strongly encourages families to prepay for their children’s meals.
If families need assistance with paying for their children’s meals or debt they can contact the front office about resources such as repayment plans.
While Summit will continue to serve meals to students with delinquent meal charges, progress reports, transcripts, and diplomas can be withheld until balances are fully paid.

Free Meals Over Summer
Nutritious free meals are available for children and teens 18 and younger at many locations throughout the nation throughout the summer while school is out of session. Use the mapping tool below to find a site near you. The tool can be found at https://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks.
The only food accommodation we provide on a wide and daily basis is vegetarian. Any student with a food limitation beyond this can fill out the attached Special Meals and/or Accommodations form (Google Doc) to have a meal that accommodates his or her health needs.
