Welcome to Child Nutrition Services!
Summer Meals Program
Child Nutrition Services is excited to again be providing delicious and nutritious FREE MEALS to ALL individuals 18 years old and under who wish to participate. Meals (breakfast and lunch) will be served Monday thru Thursdays when summer school is in session, June 6th, 2017 thru July 20th, 2017. Some of the schools participating this year are Tully C. Knoles, Sierra Middle/Lincoln High School and Village Oaks High School. Additional schools may be added. Exact times and locations will be posted in the upcoming weeks. Please check back often for additional information.
The Child Nutrition Services Department is upgrading our Point of Sale System for this upcoming school year. This upgrade requires all students receive a new 5-digit PIN# to access their meal accounts during breakfast and lunch service. The 4 digit PIN#'s used by elementary school students and the 9 digit student I.D. #'s used by Sierra Middle School and Lincoln High School Students in the past are no longer active for food service use. This upgrade will not affect online deposits or online free/reduced meal applications.
Each student has been assigned a new PIN#. This PIN# is randomly selected by the computer system. To request your child's new PIN# you may contact the Child Nutrition Services office by phone at 209-953-8401 OR email us at one of the email addresses listed below and we will respond as quickly as possible. Please include your child's name, current grade and school they attend.

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Giving students the opportunity to make healthy choices regarding nutrition is an important part of their education. Every day, students will be offered a variety of entrees and many choices of fruits, vegetables, whole grain products and milk from which to choose at mealtime.
We are committed to offering a wide variety of healthy foods to our students while complying with all nutrient and menu standards as well as program standards set by state and federal agencies that govern the National School Lunch & National School Breakfast Program. We hope to broaden the student's knowledge of what is available locally and expose them to foods they may not have considered previously. It is also our goal that each student will truly enjoy the meals offered while gaining their nutritional benefit.
Again this school year students must take a 1/2 cup serving of fruit/vegetable with every breakfast & lunch meal. We will provide a variety of fruits, vegetables and juices to help students make healthy and delicious choices for their meal.
We hope each of you have a truly successful school year.
