SAN LUIS COASTAL UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
Nutrition & Food Services
Welcome to Food Services! Our mission is to prepare our students for learning, by providing healthy and appetizing meals. We participate in both the National School Lunch and the School Breakfast Programs.
Here in San Luis Obispo County, we put special emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables. Being located in this great agricultural area, we are able to benefit from the wonderful abundance of locally grown produce. Each of our school cafeterias has a salad bar featuring a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Our menus also feature whole grains and low-fat dairy products. Food is selected with care and a nutrient analysis of the menus is done to insure that the strict standards of the child nutrition programs are met. We take great pride in caring for the health of our students. Thus, we do not fry food. We serve food which is free of trans-fat. We serve milk that does not contain antibiotics or added hormones.
The central kitchen for the school district is located on the Laguna Middle School campus. Here the baker, cook and salad/sandwich experts prepare fresh food for the students. Each morning, food is delivered from the central kitchen to the elementary school cafeterias. Each of the high schools and middle schools has a full production kitchen.
Our district is committed to ensuring that classroom activities are mindful of healthy foods. For further information regarding our District's mission to provide nutritious and well-being to each of our students, please refer to the District Wellness Policy.
We welcome your questions, comments and suggestions.
