At Rio Rancho Public Schools, ensuring our students do not face food instability is important. We want each student to come to school with a full belly and a mind ready to learn. Our district schools meet or exceed local, state, and federal nutrition requirements and/or USDA nutrition standards. If applicable, this includes At-Risk Afterschool Meals, Afterschool Snack Programs, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Programs, and/or Summer Food Service Programs.
