  • What happens if my child forgets his or her lunch?
    • Forgotten lunches (K-5) may be dropped off in the Activities/Health Office. The parent will label the lunch. The lunch will be placed on a cart which will be located directly outside of the Activities/Health Office. A classroom EA or Lunchroom Monitor will collect the lunches as needed. Note: a school lunch will always be provided to any student if they forget their lunch and on is not dropped off at the Activities/Health Office in time. The appropriate fee will be charged to the student’s Infinite Campus account.

  • Why should I fill out the Application for Educational Benefits packet if all meals are free this year? Your child(ren) may qualify for additional benefits such as reduced fees or the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) which is a federal temporary emergency nutrition benefit that is loaded onto electronic cards for families to purchase food. At public schools, your application also helps the school qualify for education funds and discounts.
  • Do I qualify for Free/Reduced Meals? Please complete and send in the Application for Educational Benefits packet.
  • Where can I find nutritional information (carbs, etc.) for school lunches? Please consult these documents:
    • Breakfast Nutrition (PDF)
    • Lunch Nutrition (PDF)
    • How to use these links. I highly recommend you do not print the document. It has several pages of information which may change frequently. We want to ensure users are getting the most accurate information. The links are live so when an adjustment is made it immediately rolls over to the links.
      • Use the Find Function on your computer:
        • Press and hold the ‘ctrl’ key and press ‘f.’ This opens the ‘find on page’ function.
        • A search bar or window will open at the top of the web browser.
        • Enter your key word to find the menu item you are looking for.
        • Clink the forward arrow to move from one item to the next.
        • Example: search for chicken quesadilla. Type quesadilla and all the quesadillas will be highlighted. Don’t search chicken as there are over 100 chicken recipes.
Hello Eagle Ridge Academy Families!

As we kick off the school year, we are so excited to be back on campus serving the school’s students, faculty and staff! Our team at Taher, Inc. is working behind the scenes with our distributors and suppliers to manage the increasingly difficult challenge of supply and demand due to disruption all over the globe.  

The supply chain disruption that started with COVID-19 hasn’t gotten better. We expect disruptions to our menus when there are product shortages, and we are prepared to meet these challenges as they occur.   

The food service management industry has been hit hard globally and it is very interesting to see how suppliers and distributors are being impacted by everything from weather to even the 2022 Winter Olympics as many businesses have had to shut down in China to prepare for the event.   All of this is coming at a time when food prices are the highest they’ve been in 10 years, and hunger is on the rise.  

We are committed to making sure we feed our guests. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know so we can address them up front. My team at Taher that will help navigate through the unknown, and I will keep you updated with any updates to our food service program.   

Thank you for trusting our team to prepare meals for your children. Taher staff will work to make sure that even if the menu must change quickly, your kids will receive a balanced, USDA approved meal at school. We enjoy seeing every person who walks into the cafeteria — connecting with them and feeding them!  

Thank you, 

Brittany Radtke
Chef Manager
Taher, Inc.
 

Please note: menus do not open on iPhones. Please open them on your home computer or Android device.

Gluten-free/Allergen meals will be offered only to families that preorder them in advance and who have completed the Special Dietary Needs form. We are able to make most menu items gluten-free with a one week advance notice which can be given by email: smeak@eagleridgeacademy.org

Vegetarian meals are offered to all students this year. Vegetarian menu items will have a (V) behind the item. Some of the regular menu items are able to be made vegetarian, an example would be (Beefy Nachos with Cheese Sauce (V)) This just means that this item will be offered with beans instead of beef for vegetarians.

All meals are pork-free.
