The District is committed to providing a school environment that ensures opportunities for all students to practice healthy eating behaviors throughout the school day and strives to teach students how to make informed choices about nutrition and health.
It is Nutritional Services’ goal to meet the nutritional needs of school children within their calorie requirements by serving healthy meals, with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free and low-fat milk; moderate in sodium, low in saturated fat, and zero grams trans fat per serving.
The school meal programs aim to improve the diet and health of school children, help mitigate childhood obesity, model healthy eating to support the development of lifelong healthy eating patterns, and support healthy choices while accommodating cultural food preferences and special dietary needs.
All schools within the District participate in USDA child nutrition programs, including the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), the School Breakfast Program (SBP). All schools within the District are committed to offering school meals through the NSLP and SBP programs, and other applicable Federal child nutrition programs.
Breakfast and lunch will be available for pick up at Foothill Elementary and Sierra Junior Senior High starting Wednesday, January 6th. Meal pickup will be available weekdays through Monday, January 18th.
Pickup at Foothill Elementary will be from 8:00am to 10:00am in the bus drop off by the MPR.
All children in the community, ages 1-18, can receive meals at no cost from either site. If the child is not present during meal pickup, only the child’s parent or legal guardian can pick up meals for their child, based on Federal National School Lunch Program regulations.
Masks are required to be worn while interacting with school staff.
If you are unable to get meals at the scheduled times, please contact Teresa Page, Director of Educational Services, for assistance at 559.855.3662 (ext. 8) or email email@example.com.
