Lunch and Nutrition

Lunch is a thirty-five minute period of time. A variety of healthy and nutritious items are sold daily. Prices and vendors are subject to change. After students have finished their lunches, they may have access to the basketball courts, volleyball courts, and athletic fields. With the exception of water, no food or drinks are allowed on the blacktop or athletic fields.

Nutrition is a fifteen-minute period designed to allow students a chance to take a break and eat a snack. Students may either bring a snack from home or purchase one during nutrition. No students are allowed in the P.E. area during nutrition.

Cash or student identification cards can be used with the food services (debit card) system to purchase food. Students participating in the food services debit card program will give their identification card to a cafeteria staff member to be scanned. A machine will automatically debit the student’s account. It is important that students not share their cards and/or student I.D. number with any other students. Students are warned when their accounts are running low. Students and/or parents must report to the food services office near the Beach Café to make deposits or can add money online at Deposits must be made in the form of a check payable to MBUSD Food Services. Please make sure to note the student’s first and last name and four-digit student identification number (found on his/her I.D. card) on the memo portion of the check. For questions regarding student accounts, please call (310) 545-4878 extension 3129. Information on eligibility for free or reduced lunch is available on the district website.

Lost or stolen I.D. cards will be replaced for $15.00 each. Please see the I.D. replacement processing instructions on the attached file. A balance in the student account at the end of the school year may be used in the next school year. Remaining balances for eighth grade students will automatically be transferred to the high school at the end of the school year. No funds are available for borrowing lunch money.

Food and drinks are to be consumed in the lower level plaza and lunch shelter areas only. All garbage and trash must be placed in the cans provided. No food is allowed in hallways, anywhere upstairs, on the volleyball or basketball courts, or in the P. E. area.

Parents may want to have students pack a non-perishable snack or have a $3.00 emergency fund in their backpacks just in case a lunch is forgotten at home or the student’s debit account runs low.
