Letter to RUSD Parents - Temporary Suspension of Using Ground Beef in School Lunches

Dear Rowland Unified Families:



We wanted to inform you of information we received from the California Department of Education.  School districts across the state have been urged to suspend using USDA commodity ground beef products in their school lunch program as a precautionary measure until further notice. There is an investigation taking place regarding a beef supplier.


The safety of our students and staff are our top priority. If you have further questions, you may contact the Food Services Department at (626) 854-8314 or you can visit the California Department of Education’s website at under What’s New.
