Due to USDA regulations allowing all children ages 18 - 0 to receive meals at no charge, the California Department of Education issued new guidance on November 17, 2020, that school districts may no longer collect, or process school meal applications. Therefore, San Juan Unified School District will be asking families to complete an Alternative Income form. Please contact your school site for a copy of this form, which is not available through Nutrition Services.

Questions: Call San Juan Nutrition Services at 916-971-7026 or [email protected]



We know that 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.
