Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District is proud to offer
nutritious meals to our students!
We currently offer lunch service at all 16 of our school sites and school breakfast at all six of the secondary level sites.
We have made some great strides over the last year and highlights include:
- All school lunches contain a meat/meat alternative, a whole grain component, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and fluid milk.
- All grain items served must be at least 51% whole grain
- All menu features follow recommended dietary fat and sodium guidelines, including snacks and beverages sold on campus.
- Fresh salad bars are available at every school site. We are proud to source our seasonal fruits and vegetables locally.
- Students are encouraged to take at least 1 serving of fruit and/or vegetable at each meal
- Vegetarian options are available daily.
- Food Services continues to seek out natural, "clean label" foods to feature on the menu.
- Food Services strives to choose products with minimal added sugars and no high fructose corn syrup.
- Food Services is pleased to use eco-friendly, biodegradable serving ware instead of Styropfoam.
We look forward to continued progress and aim to be a positive addition to your student’s day.
There are many exciting updates underway for the school nutrition program and we invite students, parents, family members, and the community to check the Food Services website frequently for the menu and new announcements.
