Lunch Program



Elevate School will offer a nutritious Top Notch Grab-n-Go 5-day breakfast and lunch meal pack at no cost to families.  We ask that meals be pre-ordered so that we can ensure we have enough for all families.  Drive-thru meal distribution will take place on Tuesdays from 11:30 am-12:30 pm at our Middle School Campus parking lot (8404 Phyllis Place, San Diego, CA 92123).

  • Please only order if you can pick up the meal that has been reserved for your child.
  • Parent/Guardian can pick up meals. Child does not need to be present.
  • Parent/Guardian must bring student barcode code. (If you have lost yours, please email and a new one will be made for you.)
  • Meals are meant for pick-up only. No on-campus consumption allowed.
  • If you would like to order free meals for siblings (18 and under) not enrolled at Elevate, please fill out the bottom portion of the order form and include the sibling's name as we need that for our records.
