Nutrition Services

The main goal of our Nutrition Services Department is to provide nutritious meals to all our students in an environment that is welcoming as well as educational. All the meals served in our school cafeterias are well-balanced and follow guidelines set by the USDA. Our team is dedicated to serving the needs of the children in our community by offering healthy choices in our cafeterias daily. With the support of our Board of Trustees, district leadership, and our Santa Rita families turning in meal applications and alternative income forms, we will remain committed to ensuring all the students in our district are able to receive wholesome and healthy meals at no cost.       

Not only do we provide breakfast before school, but did you know that each school in the Santa Rita Union School District offers healthy and nutritional breakfast to all students for “FREE” each day during morning break as well? Our daily breakfasts meet state and federal guidelines and ensure your children get the nutrients they need each day to help them excel at school.
