Welcome to Food And Nutrition Services!

Alhambra Unified School District's Food and Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of professionals dedicated to promote student wellness and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages served in your child's school cafeteria meet all State and Federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. This school year, Alhambra USD is moving forward in implementing the new meal patterns required by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.  In menu planning, more fruits and vegetables will be provided in the cafeterias.  We are increasing the use of whole-grains while reducing the levels of sodium and saturated fat in your child's school meals.  We are providing only fat-free and 1% low fat milk to all students.  In action, our cafeteria staff will encourage each student to take at least 1/2 cup of fruits or vegetables with each school lunch.  We are here to help students form a healthy life style - YOU CAN THANK US LATER!
