Food Services

We recognize the connection between good nutrition and student success. This is why our mission is to build healthier students by providing nutritious meals at NO COST to our KUSD families. This translates into well-balanced, healthy meals that provide recommended amounts of energy and nutrients needed for optimal student development and learning.

Every Student Eats for Free

Every student enrolled in a KUSD school is eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household. No further action is required of you, and there are no applications to complete. This meal program is provided through the National School Lunch ProgramCommunity Eligibility Provision through the 2019–2020 school year.

Please read our Community Eligibility Provision notification press release.

Nutritional Data

We develop our menus to meet state and national guidelines by selecting, preparing, and analyzing meals to ensure they meet the recommended dietary needs of our students. Learn more about the nutritional needs of your child by visiting the sites below:

Staff Meal Payments

All KUSD students eat free meals on campus so food service does not handle any cash in the cafeterias. Staff can enjoy healthy meals and can pre-pay for meals three ways: online at MySchoolBucks, direct pay (by cash or check) at the business office, or have a payroll deduction. 

Field Trip Request for ‘To-Go’ Student Meals 

We are happy to provide ‘to go’ student meals for field trips. We can provide breakfast, lunch, and snack (if returning after 3:00 p.m.). Just complete the field trip meal order form and email it to the food service director at least two weeks prior to departure. Please bring clean coolers to your school kitchen the day before your field trip.
