Hot Lunch

Universal Meal Program
SCSD offers breakfast and lunch at no cost to all preschool-8th grade students, regardless of family income. All students have the opportunity to participate in the District’s meal program, but participation is not required. 
Beginning in the 2023-24 school year, meals will be ordered by school sites based on student preference and participation. A variety of options will be available for breakfast and lunch for any student who would like a meal. Parents will no longer place orders.  

Based on feedback from our springtime surveys regarding our school meal program, our summer school program piloted a new approach to serving breakfast and lunch for all students. It was largely successful in reducing waste and provided more choice for students at the time of service. School sites will be ordering meals based on consumption patterns and in amounts that allow all students access to California’s Universal Meal Program for breakfast and lunch every school day. There will be no need for families to place orders as it will be done as a site. Monthly menus will be shared in school newsletters so that families can discuss options and choices together. There will be cold items served for breakfast such as cereals, muffins alongside the fruits/vegetable options and two hot options for lunch. In addition, there will be at least one cold item offered as well for lunch. Vegetarian options will be available at each meal time and allergies will be accommodated. Each site has their own meal location and service times that will be communicated to families.
