Did you know?

Well-nourished students have higher test scores, increased school attendance, improved concentration, and improved classroom behavior. Good eating habits at a young age can contribute to a long, healthy life.

The Student Nutrition Department is committed

to ensure that every student has access to nutritious meals at school contributing to their growth, learning, and academic success. Foods available at our schools are carefully selected to contribute to students’ nutritional well-being; prepared in ways which will appeal to students and foster healthy eating habits; and served by caring professionals in a friendly atmosphere.

Complimentary Meals for All Students

Let us save you both time and money and do the cooking for you! -- California has become the first state to pass a universal free school meals program for all public school students. Free lunch and brunch are offered at all schools! All meals meet or exceed USDA Nutritional guidelines which includes fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy grains, and lean proteins.

Edible Food Waste (SB 1383)

The USD Student Nutrition Department is doing its part to reduce food waste and address food insecurity. Surplus food still safe for people to eat will instead go to food banks, soup kitchens, and other food recovery organizations and services to help feed Californians in need. This will save landfill space and lower methane emissions, a climate super pollutant, emitted by organic waste in landfills.
