Lunch Services at RSD

Rochester School for the Deaf (RSD) believes that one of the most important ways we can help our students to perform better in the classrooms is to provide them with the nutrition necessary for the healthy growth of their minds and bodies. Good nutrition is critical to student development and achievement. Well-nourished students will generally have better attendance, be more attentive, and have more energy to take on the day's activities.

RSD participates in the National School Lunch Program and is committed to providing all students with the opportunity to enjoy tasty, well-balanced, and nutritionally sound lunches each school day in an atmosphere they will enjoy.

Healthy eating should begin at an early age and good nutrition plays an important part in students becoming healthy adults. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school lunches!
