Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district nurse.


Sharing the Message of Wellness

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.

Key Areas of our Wellness Policy

Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:

  • Nutrition Education
  • Physical activity
  • Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.

SB 250 BILL 

PUPIL MEALS Child Hunger Prevention and Fair Treatment Act of 2017.   

What is SB 250?
This bill enacts the Child Hunger Prevention and Fair Treatment Act of 2017. This act ensures that a pupil whose parent or guardian has unpaid school meal fees is not shamed, treated differently, or served a meal that differs from what a pupil whose parent or guardian does not have unpaid school meal fees. 

To reference the complete SB 250 Bill, visit: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180SB250

Why is this important?
Students will no longer be notified by school site food service staff in regard to their meal account. The Food Services office will notify a parent or guardian of the negative balance of a pupil’s school meal account (via letter, phone or email) no later than 10 days after the pupil’s school meal account has reached a negative balance. 

The goal of Whittier City School District’s breakfast and lunch program is to provide healthy meals to children during the school day.  In order to serve healthy, high-quality meals to all children, we must make sure we are financially secure.  Parents play a key role in this effort and are responsible for meal purchases made by their child in our school cafeterias/MPRs

We understand that mistakes happen. Children forget or lose their money, but meal payments are important to our program.  We offer several payment options for parents or guardian including schoolcafe.com, an online payment system. 

Please contact us at Food Services Department, if you have questions at (562) 789-3082.

Thank You,

Cristina Obregon

DIRECTOR, FOOD SERVICES DEPARTMENT
