Welcome to Child Nutrition Services!
Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 school year.
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.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Following the California Department of Education regulations, if your child requires a special meal, such as a gluten-free meal, you must have the Medical Statement to Request Special Meals and/or Accommodations (SPANISH) on file in the Child Nutrition Department before we can provide a different meal than what is served. The form must be filled out and signed by a licensed physician. Bring the completed form to the Child Nutrition Department within the OUSD District Office. The address is 500 Dyer Street, Orcutt, CA 93455.
