Welcome to Food & Nutrition!

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.

Windsor Unified School District is proud to have school gardens at Windsor Creek and Cali Calmecac Language Academy.  The school garden allows students to learn lifelong knowledge of growing produce, nutrition and eating fresh produce in the garden and in the school cafeteria.  The school gardens connect nutrition education and the classroom curriculum to enrich children of every age with hands-on life sciences, practical language skills, teamwork and campus ownership. Children plant, harvest and prepare seasonal foods. They experience plant life cycles first-hand as they plant, play among, then harvest produce they grow.  They observe ecosystem interdependence and insect life cycles and discover beneficial insects in the garden.  Family garden work days are fun times to make a difference for the whole school community, please contact your school to volunteer in either the garden or in the classroom helping with Harvest of the Month nutrition education program.
