Welcome to Food Services


                          Good from nature, good for you! 

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand. The Food 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.

Our Mission is to prepare and serve nutritious meals of the highest quality by knowledgeable employees who understand and demonstrate the principles of safe food handling, quality food preparation, child nutrition, customer service, teamwork and follow Federal, State, and District policies. Our goals for success is to understand that feeding our students is our main priority as well as communicating in a professional manner. Kern High School District Food Service Department is dedicated to providing our students with a well-balanced and good-tasting meal that meets all the nutrition guidelines to ensure that students have overall health and well-being.

Our meal program includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and after school snacks. Menu selections are followed based on the National School Breakfast and Lunch program guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, and administered by the California Department of Education.

We have a responsibility to keep meals as affordable as possible. Current pricing for breakfast is $1.65 and lunch is $2.90. Students participating in the dinner program and after school snacks can enjoy these meals at no charge. Meal menus, applications and program information can be accessed through our website links which includes the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program application.

Creating healthy eating habits for life is important to us! We look forward to providing meals for students so that they can perform at their best academically.
