There are so many awesome things cooking up at the Nutrition Department!

  Reasons to Come Join Us:

  • The Nutrition Team has been honored two years in a row from FRESHMeals@Schools as one of 13 school districts with the healthiest menu. 
  • Your nutrition team strives to use as many local vendors as possible for our fresh fruits, vegetables, proteins, milk and dairy.  Over the past 6 years our Nutrition program has supported more and more local companies. 
  • For the past several years we have partnered with Chico High School FFA to build the Henshaw Farm.  This past year the farm has produced watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and cranberry beans for our school food program.  That means that students produced food for other students!
  • We have our own bakery with three professional bakers that produce many of our breakfast items such as muffins, cinnamon rolls, and dinner rolls!  Our bakery also provides wonderful bakery products for our catering events.
  • As time continues our goal continues to be to use as few processed foods as possible.  We prepare many of our menu items from scratch and are continually working to eliminate more and more of the processed foods. A great example is our pizza.  We make the dough fresh daily, the sauce from scratch and assemble all the pizzas right in our bakery using low sodium cheese, fresh vegetables and local meats.
  • Our Turkey and Gravy and some of our Secondary Burritos are all made from scratch. Turkey, pork, beef and beans all cooked from scratch and used in several of our recipes.
  • We just received a great new product for our freshly made sandwiches. Farm to Family all natural, Oven Roasted sliced Turkey. No antibiotics ever, no added hormones or steroids, and it is a Gluten Free product.

The Nutrition Team strives to provide outstanding customer service to our guests every day.  It is our goal to greet the students with a smile, use their name, thank them for joining us and invite them back.  We value our guests and continue to work to provide a fun, healthy environment for them to enjoy their meals.

Thank you all for supporting the CUSD Nutrition program by having your student join us for breakfast and lunch every day. We have many great options for them to choose from. In order to be prepared for the beginning of school, please be sure to fill out the meal application enclosed in this packet and return it to our office located at: 2455 Carmichael Drive, Chico, CA  95928.

 

Sincerely,

Nutrition Services, Chico Unified School District
