Gilbert Arts Academy operates the National School Lunch Program, which is a federally assisted meal program to provide nutritionally balanced, low‐cost meals to school children each school day. As a requirement for this program, Gilbert Arts Academy is required to distribute household applications. Household applications for free and reduced meals are available in the front office and as a printable document (to the right). These applications can be filled out multiple times throughout the year, which allows families who have experienced a change in their household size or income the opportunity to apply for free or reduced price meals at any time.
Lunches must be pre-ordered & pre-paid monthly. Due to the fact that our lunches are catered, daily payment cannot be accepted. Student lunch cost $3.00 for full priced or $0.40 for reduced priced meals. Meals may be paid by cash or check. Lunch orders are due by the date indicated on the menu sent home. Late orders cannot be accepted.
It is very important that you fill out a menu each month for each student, even if they qualify for free or reduced meals. Students who are part of the free/reduced program who order and decide to bring a lunch instead, are responsible for the full cost of the meal ordered.
Lunch is served between 10:40 a.m.-12:20 p.m. daily.
If you have any questions regarding Gilbert Arts Academy's lunch program, please contact Ms. Laura Isaacs by email or call our front office 480.325.6100.
Gilbert Arts Academy does not offer lunch on Fridays due to early dismissal at 12:30 pm. Students all have a scheduled morning recess and snack time so that they have the opportunity to eat a light or substantial snack. We encourage parents/guardians to provide a bagged lunch if their children are attending Mustang Corral after school.
