Food & Nutrition

Berkeley Unified School District’s School Lunch Initiative has two primary goals:

Serve nutritious and delicious, freshly prepared meals using locally grown food to all of our students

Educate children in kitchen, garden, and academic classrooms about their food choices and the impact those choices have on their health, the community, and the environment.

There are no processed foods, hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, refined sugars, refined flour, chemicals, dyes, additives, and nitrates in BUSD school lunches. Regional organic milk is served at lunch, and local and/or organic fruits and vegetables are used as much as possible.

You can help support the School Lunch Initiative by purchasing school lunch for your child.
