Good nutrition and academic success go hand in hand!
Our Food Services Department consists of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well-being, and their ability to learn. We support academic success by providing healthy meal choices while promoting lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
The St. Johns Unified School District is proud to be part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Lunches are required by NSLP guidelines to provide at least one third of a child’s Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of calories, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron at lunch, and one fourth of the RDA for these nutrients at breakfast. We plan our meals, on average to provide 30% or less of calories from fat and 10% or less from saturated fat on average. Our elementary and middle schools offer salad bars which help reinforce “healthy” food choices, and the high school offers freshly prepared salads daily.
