Santee School District Meal Distribution Policy:
In order for the Santee School District to maintain accountability and program integrity we will ensure that meals are distributed only to parents or guardians of eligible children, and that duplicate meals are not distributed to any child, by communicating via email and all call messaging the following;
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Child Nutrition program provides portioned, balanced, healthy, and delicious meals to students in the Santee School District.
We offer a large variety of options in an attempt to meet the needs of all our students. All of our bread items are made with whole grains. At lunch students can choose from a minimum of five different entrees each day along with sides from the self-serve salad bar to compliment the entrees. We offer a a variety of fruits and vegetables including dark greens, red/oranges, legumes and a variety of fresh and canned fruits. On a regular basis we offer farm to school produce picked just a day or two before it reaches the salad bar.
All students are offered five food groups and are required to take at least three.
One of the three groups must be at least a 1/2 cup of fruit and/or vegetable.
It is our pleasure to serve your students each day.
If you have any questions or would like more information please feel free to contact me at 619-258-2290.
