Child Nutrition & Wellness

Children spend 12 years of their youth in school developing minds, 
bodies, and attitudes in preparation for life. They spend six to seven hours daily in school, influenced daily by the experiences that shape lives and, ultimately, the future.

The school food service program is an essential part of the total education provided to our students. Based on the premise that well-nourished students are better prepared to learn, the Food Service Department plays a vital role on the educational team of the school.

During the school year, the CESD Food Service Department is:

  • Serving an average of 6,500 lunch meals per day at 9 sites.
  • Providing lunch meals at 9 sites in the district.
  • Providing Breakfast-in-the-Classroom district-wide. 
  • Providing catering services for special functions throughout the district.
  • Registered dietitians available to answer nutrition-related questions.
  • Continuing to analyze menus in order to meet dietary guidelines.

For further information about any aspect of the food and nutrition program, please call 602-381-6048.
