Ross Elementary offers a breakfast and lunch program. Breakfast for all Ross students is FREE and is served from 8:15-8:40 each morning in our cafeteria. Lunches may be purchased on a daily basis by enrolling in or calling (1-800- 479-3531). Forms to apply for free and reduced meals (FARMS) are available in the main office and on the DCPS website. The cafeteria staff may not handle cash so you must enroll in to purchase meals.

The cafeteria provides students with a monthly menu from our assigned food services provider, Chartwells. Students may also bring meals from home but please note that we do not allow gum or candy at school nor do we permit students to heat lunch items up in a microwave. Parents may not bring food into the cafeteria for birthdays or other celebrations. Due to the small size of our cafeteria, some grade levels eat lunch in the classrooms.

The contact number for DCPS Office of Food and Nutrition Services is 202.719.6599.
