Nutrition Services is responsible for all district cafeterias, from the acquisition of food, supplies and equipment to the preparation and serving of nutritious breakfast and lunch meals to 104,000 students on a daily basis. Nutrition Services plays an important role in supporting the educational achievements of students, as “you cannot teach a hungry child”. We strive to serve appealing, tasty, and nutritious meals in a pleasant atmosphere at an affordable cost.
Nutrition Services is also on the forefront of the Farm to School movement. Farm to School connects schools (K-12) and local farms with the objectives of serving healthy meals in school cafeterias, improving student nutrition, providing agriculture, health and nutrition education opportunities, and supporting local and regional farmers.
