RICHMOND INTERMEDIATE NEWS
RICHMOND AM BREAKFAST/SNACK CART
Did you know that Organic Life offers a morning Food Service to ALL Richmond students?
In the morning, from 7:40-8:05 am, all Richmond students are able to go grab a breakfast/snack bag in the front hallway. The process is the same as lunch. Students find their id card and money is deducted from their online school account. Students who receive free and reduced lunch services would follow the same process of scanning their lunch card.
Students can use this on a regular basis if you choose, or they can use it when they forget to eat breakfast or forget their daily snack. Please discuss this service with your child should the need arise.
The daily cost for breakfast is $1.60
The daily cost for students on reduced lunch is $0.30
There is no cost to students receiving free lunch, breakfast is also included.
If you should have any questions about breakfast, please call the main office at (331) 228-2800.
