Food Services / Student Wellness Policy/Plan

Our Mission

To provide healthy, nutritious meals for students in the Hughson Unified School District in an effort to enhance student performance.

Nutrition Commitment

•   Student meals will contain adequate calories and a variety of foods to support growth, development, and healthy weight.

•   Our nutrition standard will be based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the Food Guide Pyramid.

•   Student preferences and input will be considered in menu planning, since foods must be eaten to provide adequate nutrients.

•   Purchasing practices will ensure the use of high-quality ingredients and prepared products to maximize acceptance.


Financial Assistance - National School Lunch Program

Free and reduced-priced lunches may be obtained by any student -- at any time during the school year -- when family income falls within the guidelines set by the US Department of Agriculture. Applications are given to all students in grades K-12 when school begins. All application information is confidential and is used only to determine eligibility for the program. Students receiving lunches under this plan are identified only to the lunchroom cashiers

Applications for free and reduced-priced meals must be submitted to Food Services either through the student's school site office, by mailing directly to the Food Services Department with guardian's signature or by completing the form online using the link below.

EZMeal App provides users with a convenient, private and secure method of submitting an application for free and reduced-priced meals online.
