The BCS Student Nutrition Services Department would like to share the District meal plans for this upcoming school year during the Remote/Hybrid phase.

Our goal is to continue to provide nutritious meals for all our students. In order to achieve this goal, we have developed the following in conjunction with district administration.

PLEASE understand, as we return to our regular school year, we are only able to provide meals for students ENROLLED in the Belen School District. Due to the return to USDA funding, meals cannot be provided for anyone not enrolled in school.

Until school begins with the Hybrid Schedules, Nutrition Services will be providing a grab and go meal service for enrolled BCS students at their respective school sites. A breakfast and lunch will be given out from 11:00-1:00 pm Monday through Friday.

You must provide your student’s name and school ID number at time of pick up.

August 31-October 3, BHS- Grab and Go Meal Service-AT BHS

August 31- September 18th, BMS -Grab and Go Meal Service- AT BMS

August 31- September 4th, Elementary Schools, Grab and Go Meal Service- AT Elementary School of enrollment.

Hybrid Schedule: Beginning Tuesday, September 8th, the district begins the hybrid schedule for Elementary Schools.

A days, Monday and Tuesday, will eat at school at the place and time their Principal have determined by school site. At the end of the day on Tuesday, students will receive three additional meals to take home for the remainder of the week.

B day students, attending on Thursday and Friday will follow same procedures for eating during their days at school and again receive three meals to take home at the end of the day on Friday. These meals are for the three days they are not present in school (Monday-Wednesday)

BCS remote or virtual learners will be able to pick up a week’s worth of meals every Wednesdays. Remote learners who would like to participate in this meal service must sign up, so each cafeteria site will know how many meals to prepare on Wednesdays. We will mail or pass out student ID cards to be used on pick up day Wednesdays. Cards will verify the student’s enrollment with BCS to assist with account and tracking. Meal counts are required to be submitted to the State Department of Education for verification and reimbursement. Please remember you must bring and show Student ID Cards to receive meals. *Students do not have to be in the car with you, but a valid ID cards must be shown to assist with the Point of Service Tracking Program.

As the Belen Consolidated School District is a CEP (Community Eligibility Provision) district, every enrolled child eats at no cost to the student.

We will not have meals available to sell to parents or guardians.

We cannot provide meals to any other children in the household, younger or older siblings, not enrolled in the BCS district due to the program requirements..

If you have additional questions or need more information, Please reach out to our office and call us at 505-966-1714.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all work towards feeding our students nutritious and delicious meals.
