California Thursdays Collective Action Day

January 26, 2017

This statewide Collective Action Day promotes and brings attention to our freshly prepared school meals made from California grown products. School districts across the state collectively will be showcasing the abundance of seasonal, regionally procured, delicious and nutritious foods that are served in our school cafeterias.

California Thursdays is an initiative to serve healthy, freshly prepared school meals made from California grown products. It was launched in 2014 by fifteen school districts, in partnership with the Center for Ecoliteracy, and has now grown into seventy-eight districts across the state that serve over 283 million meals annually that are all sourced right here in California.

As a large food service operation we have an exciting opportunity to partner with local growers and California businesses to invest in our student’s health, the local environment and economy.



Pew Charitable Trust Highlights McNair High School's Mobile Carts in USDA Case Study

The Kids’ Safe and Healthful Foods Project—a joint initiative of The Pew Charitable Trusts and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation—studied 19 schools last year to explore the effects of this federal funding on students and meal programs around the country. Our very own McNair High School was selected as one of those case study and featured in a recently published article.



The Food Service Staff at Lodi Unified School District is dedicated to providing students and staff members with attractive, well balanced, and nutritious meals.

We value all students and staff as our customers.

We strive to provide the best possible quality foods, services and nutritional knowledge to our students and employees. We want to be the friendliest and most efficient school food service establishment in San Joaquin County.


We are now accepting free and reduced lunch applications for the 2016-2017 school year.
