Our Goal

The goal of Child Nutrition Services is to make a significant contribution to the overall physical and mental well-being of each student to enable them to participate fully in the education process. We provide wholesome, high quality, nutritious and appetizing meals to both students and staff. The staff prepares most of the meals from scratch to ensure healthy and fresh food choices for the students. We partner with local farms to bring to freshest fruits and vegetables to our students while supporting local farms.
 
Fillmore Unified School District is a participant in the National School Breakfast, National School Lunch, and After School Supper programs. Meals are served at no charge during the 2018-2019 school year to all students at all sites because the District participates in a Federal Meal Program called Provision 2.
 
Our District's School Wellness Policy encourages students and their families to make food and physical activity choices for a healthy lifestyle. It also sets strict guidelines for the type of food that is offered to our students and meets the nutrient requirements for their age group. It also addresses the issue of foods being sold on campus for fundraisers.
 
Research by the United States Department of Agriculture has shown that students who eat nutritious school meals learn better and meeting nutritional requirements throughout childhood is vital to full intellectual development. The USDA also states that children who aren't hungry feel better, learn better, and behave better.
 
Food for Sale Standards
 
The types of food sold in the schools will contribute to the daily nutritional needs of the Children, providing healthy food choices and well-balanced meals to children, following the Dietary guidelines provided by the Department of Agriculture. Food sold for special or extracurricular events cannot be sold during school lunchtimes in competition with the school meal program.
 
Meal Accommodations for Students with Disabilities:

Fillmore Unified School District is required to make reasonable accommodations for any student with a disability that restricts his/her diet, when supported by a Medical Statement to Request Special Meals and/or Accommodations from a state licensed healthcare professional. The California Department of Education only permits the following state licensed healthcare professionals to complete and sign the form: licensed physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. The form must be completed in its entirety and returned to the student’s school administration office. The form should be updated by the licensed healthcare professional, as appropriate, to reflect current medical/nutritional needs of the student.
 
Please note: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act has broadened the definition of disability, to cover most physical and mental impairments. A student need not have a life-threatening allergy to be considered a disability. For more information about what constitutes a disability for the purpose of meal accommodations, please refer to the California Department of Education’s Management Bulletin SNP-02-2017, “Modifications to Accommodate Disabilities in the School Meal Programs.”
