Welcome to Child Nutrition Services
Welcome Back to School! After eighteen months of distance learning, it is nice to see students and
staff on the East Side campuses for the 2021-2022 school year.
Over the past eighteen months, ESUHSD Child Nutrition Services (CNS) has served over 1.3 million meals to students and families in our East Side community. The dedicated CNS staff have been in their kitchens preparing and serving breakfast, lunch, and supper to all those needing this essential service.
We are excited to share that all students can receive one free breakfast and one free lunch per day this school year. No application is required to receive the free meals, BUT it is very important to fill out the meal application for district funding purposes and other benefits available to those that qualify. Meal applications can be found at your school site, Education Center, and online.
We offer a variety of menu choices including ethnic flavors, non-meat entrees, and fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Menus meet state and federal guidelines and we are always open to menu suggestions.
While we transition out of distance learning – ala carte options will be introduced at schools as staffing and products become available. Ala carte options are food items in addition to the breakfast and lunch offerings - i.e. chips, drinks, snack items. To assist with line speed, putting money on your student's MySchoolBucks.com account is greatly appreciated.
We wish you the very best school year and welcome you back to campus with open arms and a hot meal.
