The DUSD Food Service Department strives to provide healthy, nutritious meals;  focusing on healthy eating habits and promoting a positive student-centered environment.

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Food Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
