During the school year, SCUSD’s Nutrition Services serves more than 50,000 meals a day in school cafeterias throughout the city. Many students eat for free:  about two-thirds of SCUSD’s 47,000 students qualify for a free- or reduced-price meal through the federal school lunch program. 

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) benefits all children in accordance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) policy. All meals must meet the USDA minimum meal guidelines. Meals must follow a specified plan that includes milk, fruits, vegetables or juice, whole grain products and meat or meat alternative. 

Summer Food Service is a federally-funded program and SCUSD’s costs are reimbursed by the federal government.
