What’s New with Oxford’s Lunch Program

Oxford Prep is excited to announce our new and improved school lunch program!

Oxford Prep is proud to have received approval from the California Department of Education to be a National School Lunch Program (NSLP) food vendor. Revolution Foods has been officially approved to provide NSLP services to both our Saddleback Valley and South Orange County campuses.

Revolution Foods (also know as “Rev” Foods) specializes in serving fresh and affordable food options to students. Rev Foods is committed to high quality ingredients like whole muscle meats, rBST free milk, unbleached flour, and fresh fruit.

Their meals are hand prepared and delivered to our school sites fresh daily. With vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options, most dietary needs can now be met. What you won’t find in their school meals are artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

NEW convenient online payments for student lunches

We are also pleased to announce our new partnership with MealTime, a convenient and secure online service for making credit or debit card payments to your child’s lunch account.

Setting up your Mealtime account is quick and easy. Visit our website to read the simple three step set-up instructions and get your student account(s) ready for the school year today!

In addition to convenient online payments using a credit or debit card, parents may also load their child’s account with a cash payment at the front office.

Your Child’s ID

When signing up with MealTime, you will be asked to enter your child’s Oxford Prep ID. For your convenience, this information was provided in the information email that was sent on August 10th to the parent email address we have on file in SchoolMessenger. Please write down or store your child’s ID number in a convenient place as it is required when placing a lunch order.
