District lunch menus offer great variety and meet nutritional guidelines for children established by the Federal Government. There are more than 11 options for students to choose each day. Parents of children who have food allergies may request access to nutrition labels which are stored digitally, to identify items that their children need to avoid. Call Jane Blackburn, Director of Cafeteria Operations, at 678-7548, for questions and concerns related to food allergies.
The Oceanside Schools’ Food Service Department is pleased to offer a secure, family-friendly system for online pre-payments and nutrition education through our Nutrikids operating system. My SchoolBucks allows parents to deposit money into their child’s school meal plan, track purchases, and view their balance. We will send letters home before school opens to further explain and provide your child’s student ID# which is necessary to sign up.
Reduced-Priced Meals 2021-22
The U.S. Deparment of Agriculture (USDA) is extending its reimbursement of school breakfast and lunch to the end of the 2021-22 school year for all students. This doesn't include snacks, only breakfast and lunch. Families are encouraged, however, to complete the Free and Reduced Price Meals applications if they qualify, as it may help determine other benefits.
