Welcome to Food Services!

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The principal objective of the school lunch program is to serve an attractive and nutritious meal at the lowest possible price to the greatest number of students. We contribute to the education of the students by making them aware of well balanced meals and good eating habits.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Pandemic EBT

Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits will be available for eligible California families soon! This is in addition to the meals being served daily to children 18 and under in our community. 

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school will get extra food benefits. These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT benefits. P-EBT benefits help families in California buy food when schools are closed because of the coronavirus emergency.

Families will get up to $365 per eligible child on their P-EBT card to use on food and groceries.

Families with children who get CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits do not need to apply. Most will get their P-EBT card in the mail during the month of May. P-EBT cards will begin arriving in May, 2020.

Families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and who do not get their P-EBT card in the mail, must apply online before June 30, 2020. The online application will launch in late May.

Additional information will be posted  on this website https://ca.p-ebt.org/ as soon as it's available.
