Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program

Our Nutrition Services Department has implemented a fresh fruit and vegetable program in 10 elementary schools to provide students with a wide variety of healthy fresh fruits and vegetables. The purpose of the program is to increase fresh fruit and vegetable consumption in elementary schools and it has proven successful in introducing students to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to sample.

All children attending Pueblo City Schools will be served breakfast and lunch at no charge.

We strive to ensure every student receives a nutritious and healthy meal.  Our dedicated and caring staff  always put students first. We offer students a variety of entrees, six servings of fruits and vegetables and low fat and skim milk.  We focus on providing students healthy choices because healthy students learn better.

Each school day, nearly 11,500 students eat breakfast and  11,000 eat lunch made possible by the district’s Nutrition Services Department.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the nutrition needs of students.
