Welcome to Student Nutrition!

Director's Message:

This school year (December) will mark my first full year with MHUSD and I'm excited!  In 9 months, the team is refocused towards delicious food and an inviting service model.  We're committed to sourcing and serving fresh fruits and vegetables whenever possible, while insuring a low carbon footprint.  Cafeterias are being inspired with a modern farmhouse feel.   We're calling all of these changes "Farm Fresh".  Your Student Nutrition Team is passionate and dedicated, so look for more great things to come....

Updates

This year we've partnered with several new organizations.  Daylight Foods is our new produce company.  Daylight is based out of Milpitas and we participate in their Daylight 150 program.  This program focuses on produce grown within a 150 mile radius of the Bay Area.  We've also partnered with California Farmers' Market Association (which operates the Morgan Hill Farmers Market) and Amor Organics (farmer food hub in Watsonville), to provide miniature farmers markets and fruit/vegetable tastings at our schools.  More to come......

We were also the recipient of the 2018 CDE's Breakfast Grant over the summer.  Money awarded to our department will be used to update aging equipment, re-imagining our cafeterias to align with our "Farm Fresh" model, and increasing our digital marketing with fun LED Menu boards, newly installed TV's, and website/social media improvements.
