The Food and Nutrition Services department is committed to providing healthy school meals and snacks to the students of San Diego Unified in order to support student academic success and promote healthful eating habits that lead to lifelong positive nutrition practices. We provide more than 135,000 meals and snacks per day to students and staff throughout the district, and employ more than 1,400 team members.
School meals are served to students under the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. Meals and snacks are also served through the United States Department of Agriculture’s Seamless Summer Option and the Child and Adult Care Feeding Program. Following the nutrition guidelines prescribed by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, we serve whole-grain rich products; low fat and fat free milk; 100% fruit and/or vegetable juices; and a variety of fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables.
All students, regardless of their family's income or school of attendance, have the option to eat school meals free of charge. This means families do not need to complete a meal application this year.
For the 2021-22 school year, students have access to 17 nutritious meals per week -- breakfast, lunch and supper Monday-Friday, plus lunch for the two weekend days. Lunch is served on-campus, while breakfast, supper and weekend meals are provided in take-home meal bags. Students do not need to use PIN numbers to receive their meals. Each student may receive only one lunch and one take-home meal bag. All meals will be consumed outdoors.
