We know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Nutrition Services team 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.
San Juan Unified participates in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. All San Juan district schools will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision program (CEP). This means that federal meal applications will not be required.
*The district will still be requesting School Funding Forms from households with a student enrolled in the district. However, receipt of free breakfast and lunch meals does not depend on returning the form.
School meals follow the standards set by USDA. Whole grains, lean proteins, dairy and fresh fruits and vegetables make up the meals that give students nutrition for learning and lifelong good nutrition. Current guidelines for lunch require us to offer 5 components daily - fruits, vegetables, whole grains, meat/meat alternates and milk. A student must take at least 3 of the 5 required components and at least 1 of those 3 must be a fruit or vegetable. A vegetarian option is offered daily.
All meals must be consumed on site.
