Child Nutrition Services

Welcome to Child Nutrition Services

The Child Nutrition Services Department recognizes the connection between a healthy diet and a student's ability to learn.  Students who make nutritious food choices give themselves an edge for optimal mental and physical performance.  Our Child Nutrition staff takes a great deal of pride in the quality of meals they prepare.


Nutritional information on any foods served can be obtained by calling the Child Nutrion Services Department.

Important Information to know . . .

The Newark Unified School District participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. To comply with Federal guidelines, all food must be prepared and stored properly and menus must be analyzed to ensure students are receiving the prescribed amounts of calories, fat, fiber, and nutrients.


All food products and recipes are analyzed. Recipes are modified to reduce the fat and sodium, animal protein is decreased and whole grains and pastas are increased. Computers have been installed in all our cafeterias.


Each student is issued a Student Identification Card. Each card is printed with the student's name, homeroom, grade, and a bar code representing the student's I.D. number. Computers enable the CND to maintain the confidentiality of students' eligibility for free or reduced price meals as required by the Federal guidelines and to track student meals and sales. Personal checks for a minimum of 10 lunches are accepted for meal payments. A $25 service fee is charged for all checks returned. Prepayments decrease the time students must wait in the lunch line to be served.


As part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program, NUSD provides free and reduced price meals for children who meet the eligibility criteria. A new application must be submitted each school year. Applications for free or reduced meals are available in each school office and the Child Nutrition Office, which is located at 37370 Birch St., Newark CA, 94560.
