The Nutrition Services Department is composed of dedicated Nutrition Services personnel, operating on-site cafeterias at each school, as well as district office personnel who oversee and support each site operation. Since six schools have their own on-site kitchen, foods are prepared fresh daily to encourage student acceptance and consumption of the meals offered. Each school is fully staffed with a Nutrition Services supervisor and support Staff.
Although Nutrition Services falls in the Business Services Division of the District, the department is committed to providing the nutrition and nutrition education necessary for students to be ready to learn in the classroom. In doing this, Nutrition Services looks at the health of the total school environment: healthy foods available, adequate time to eat, pleasant eating environment.
The activities of Nutrition Services are regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture and monitored by the California Department of Education through the Nutrition Services Division. All of our meals are nutrient analyzed and meet federally mandated guidelines of the USDA.
Our office is located in the Maintenance and Operation building at 9430-D Lake St. in Lower Lake.
