Food Service at Tahoma
It is incredibly important that our students eat healthy meals to be fueled for the day! Countless studies show that with better nutrition, students are better able to learn, have fewer absences, have behavioral improvements, and achieve more academically.
Our daily brunch and lunch are provided by The Lunchmaster, which make nutritious food for several schools in the bay area. They never use artificial colors, flavors, or high-fructose corn syrup in their food. All food is made using wholesome, natural, and local ingredients. Their menus are well-balanced and nutritious.
The Lunchmaster follows the strict regulations of the National School Lunch Program.

Summit Meal Charge Policy
All Summit families will be asked to complete a meal eligibility application every year. Families can find assistance with applying for free or reduced price school meals by contacting the Operations Manager.
For families who don’t qualify for free and reduced price school meals, Summit charges meals at the time of service and sends invoices homes to families at the beginning of every month. Payment for balances is expected by the end of the month and can be made by check, cash or online using a credit card. Summit strongly encourages families to prepay for their children’s meals.
If families need assistance with paying for their children’s meals or debt they can contact the Operations Manager about resources such as repayment plans.
While Summit will continue to serve meals to students with delinquent meal charges, progress reports, transcripts, and diplomas can be withheld until balances are fully paid.
