Ruth King Elementary is one of the lucky schools, and we receive a Brown Bag Lunch Program delivered to our school every day.  This program is sponsored/subsidized in part by the Community LINK Program and the School Board.

This year our brown bag lunch program will be $80.00 per month per child, which has been averaged out over the ten months of the school year.  Each lunch costs the School District approximately $4.30 per day, and includes 1/3 of their daily Recommended Nutrient Intake (RNI).  Families who use the Program because it is easier than making lunch at home are asked to pay the full amount requested each month per child.  All other families are asked to contribute their fair share based on their needs.

Some other suggested payment options if you are unable to pay in full might be:

1)      Pay $40.00 with a subsidy of 50%

2)      Pay $20.00 with a subsidy of 75%

3)      Pay $16.00 with a subsidy of 80%

4)      Pay $8.00 with a subsidy of 90%

5)      If you are unable to contribute this month, your child or children are still welcome to register for the program.

No child should go hungry at lunch and

each family should support the program with whatever amount is possible.
