Welcome Back Families!


With school starting, lunches will continue but look different then they have since we left. We can no longer do universal free meals, but the meals will be provided based off of your child’s lunch status (free, reduced, paid). Breakfast and lunch will both be offered to students enrolled in Peoria Unified School District. The cost of the meals are as follows:


Breakfast: Paid $1.50, Reduced $0.30, Free $0.00

Lunch: Paid $2.50, Reduced $0.40, Free $0.00


During the first couple of days (August 5-10) while we try to get on our new remote learning schedule, meal service will be curbside at Lake Pleasant Elementary from 11:15am-12:00pm in the bus loading zone in front of the cafeteria. This would be an ideal time to put money on your students lunch account if need be. Otherwise you can schedule a time with the office to add money to your students account or go online to


Beginning Tuesday August 11th meal service will be switched to a delivery option to better serve our families. At that time curbside will no longer be an option until we resume in person learning, at which point delivery will no longer be an option since we will be doing curbside again. We will be delivering meal on Tuesday and Thursday. With only two delivery days the meals will look as follows:


Tuesday delivery- meals for Tuesday and Wednesday (breakfast and lunch available, not required to take both)

Thursday delivery- meals for Thursday, Friday, and Monday (breakfast and lunch available, not required to take both)


To register for meal delivery please go to Https://  at your earliest convenience.  This survey will help us find the closest drop off and delivery time for you/your student to pick up the meals.  


For any questions please contact either Food and Nutrition- 623-487-5185, or myself at 623-773-6583


Thank you,
