When it comes to your child's nutrition, we know you have questions. And we want to give you answers.
If you do not see an answer to your question, please contact us.

Nutrition and Food Questions

Where can I find a breakfast or lunch menu?

Visit our Menus and Nutrition website for our full menu.

 

We make every effort to serve what is on the menu; however, on rare occasions, we may have to substitute an item not listed. We thank you for your understanding.

 

Our meals meet strict nutrition standards, including limits on calories, sodium, and unhealthy fats. We also ensure meals include whole grain and lean protein foods, a variety of fruits and vegetables, and 1% or fat-free milk.

 

Visit our Wellness Page for more information on how we are striving to keep our students and community healthy.

Visit our Menus and Nutrition website to view the menu and each items listed with common allergens. Although, please note, menu items and ingredients are subject to change without notice.

 

When it comes to safety and food allergies, education plays a critical role. You can help to support our efforts by encouraging your student to ask questions if the child is not sure if a food is safe for them to eat. Please consult a medical professional for assistance with diagnosing and treating a suspected medical condition. 

Federal law and the regulations of our programs require us to make accommodations for students who are unable to eat the school meal as prepared because of an allergy or disability.

 

A Medical and Allergy Request Form will need to be filled out and signed by a licensed physician. 

 

We are unable to provide alternate meal accommodations for non-medical reasons.

 

For milk substitutions, a Milk Substitution Request can be filled out and signed by a parent or guardian. 

 

Forms can be emailed to Stephanie Drury or brought into the CNS Office. Please allow up to five business days for the request to be processed.


Cost, Meal Applications & Alternate Income Forms

At the beginning of the 2022-23 School Year, California became the first state to implement a statewide Universal Meals Program.

 

Breakfast and lunch are currently available free of charge to all students. 

We are required to collect meal applications for the Free and Reduced Meals program from every household with a student who attends one of the following schools:

 

Beaumont High

Summerwind Trails

Sundance Elementary

Beaumont Middle College High

Anna Hause Elementary

Tournament Hills

Mountain View Middle

Brookside Elementary           

San Gorgonio Middle

Starlight Elementary  

 

Households that are eligible for free or reduced price meals may use their letter of eligibility to receive discounts on other things such as testing, college applications, bus passes, after-school and summer programs, as well as some phone, internet, and utility bills.

 

Please Note

If your student attends Palm Innovation Academy, Three Rings Ranch Elementary, or Glen View High School, you do not need to fill out a meal application.

 

These sites are currently operating under a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program which excludes the need for meal applications. You are only required to complete the yearly Aeries registration process to determine your student’s eligibility. (For more information on this topic, please see “What is an Alternate Income Form.”)

If you have questions or need assistance filling out the application, please contact us and we will be happy to help you.

If you do not wish to create an account with Titan, you can still access the meal application by selecting “Apply For Meals Today.” 

Once you have submitted your online application you will immediately receive a confirmation email that it has been received and a separate email with your eligibility status once it has been processed. If you submitted a hard copy application, you will receive a letter in the mail with your results when your application has been processed.

 

Please have your application completed before the deadline for the current year. 

Keep in mind this letter is important for your records. Qualifying for free or reduced price meals may also make you eligible for discounts on other things such as afterschool and summer programs, student testing fees, and phone and internet services. If you do need another copy, please contact the CNS Office to request one. 

An Alternate Income Form is the portion of the Aeries registration process that asks for household size and income information. 

Qualifying for free or reduced price meals may make your student eligible to receive a Pandemic EBT (or P-EBT) card.  Pandemic EBT is a federal program that operates separately from individual school districts. They use free and reduced price eligibility status from previous school years as part of their eligibility process. Previous P-EBT card distribution is not a guarantee for future years.

Meal Accounts & Payments

You can set up an account by visiting the Titan website and choosing "Sign up Today!"

Money can be quickly and easily added to your student's online Titan account by logging in and selecting “Add One Time Account Payment.” You also have the option to set up Recurring Payments. 

 

This account will allow your student to purchase additional meals, a la carte items (if available), and bottled water. 

 

If you do not have an account and would like to set one up, you may do so by clicking here and choosing “Sign Up Today!”

A la carte refers to an item that is available for purchase outside of the complete meal. Availability varies by site. 

You can reach Titan support at 1-844-467-4700.

If your student has money left on their account at the end of the year, it will be available on the first day of school the following year as long as they remain at Beaumont Unified School District. 

 

If your student is graduating, moving out of the district, or no longer needs to have a meal account, please contact the CNS Office to request a meal account reimbursement. Please allow up to two weeks for the check to be processed. It will be mailed to the address you provide us at the time of the request.
