Quality, Healthy Meals 

We cook REAL food, not fast food. About 70% of everything that comes from our kitchen is made from scratch.  We use some of the finest ingredients, most from local vendors.  We purchase 55% of all produce locally to help support the farmers in our community. Our goal is to increase our purchases as we develop relationships with our local farms. We remain innovative and look for ways to produce new healthy recipes, for example we charbroil our own chicken to lock in flavor. 

Excellent Service

SNS staff is dedicated to serving our students. Our food service professionals are educated in the areas of nutrition, customer service, safety and sanitation.  We pride ourselves on delivering nutritious meals to students in a safe and friendly environment.  SNS provides healthy school breakfasts, lunches, and snacks to students. We provide nutrition education and work with children who have special nutrition needs??.

Supporting Education through Nutrition 

Good nutrition is key to a healthy life. Studies show that students who are well nourished have increased attendance, higher academic success and are able to concentrate and perform at all levels at higher standards. We are proud of our accomplishments and look for ways to continue to improve.

Free and Reduced-Priced Meals

DJUSD is announcing the availability of free and reduced-price meals for enrolled children.  Applications are available at the school office at each campus in the Davis Joint Unified School District.  To apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits, households must complete an application and return it to the school for processing.  Applications may be submitted at any time during the school year.  The information households provide on the application will be used to determine meal eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school or program officials.


Requirements for school officials to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price benefits are as follows: For households receiving CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR benefits – applications need only include the enrolled child(ren)'s name, CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR case number, and the signature of an adult household member. All children in households that receive CalFresh, CalWORKS, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR are eligible for free meals, and if any child is not listed on the eligibility notice, that household should contact their school to have benefits extended to that child.  For households who do not list a CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR case number, the application must include the names of all household members, the amount and source of the income received by each household member, and the signature and corresponding last four digits of a Social Security number of an adult household member.  If the household member who signs the application does not have a Social Security number, the household member must indicate on the application that a Social Security number is not available.


Under the provisions of the free and reduced-price meal policy, the determining official(s), as designated by the sponsor/agency, shall review applications and determine eligibility.  Parents or guardians dissatisfied with the eligibility ruling may discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis.  Parents may also make a formal request for an appeal hearing of the decision and may do so orally or in writing with the sponsor/agency’s hearing official.  Parents or guardians should contact their child(ren)’s school(s) for specific information regarding the name of the determining official and/or hearing official for a specific school, agency, or district.


If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size increases, the household should contact the school.  Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for benefits if the household's income falls at or below the levels shown above.


Households that receive CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR benefits may not have to complete an Application for Free or Reduced-Price Meals or Free Milk. School officials will determine eligibility for free meals based on documentation obtained directly from the CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR office that a child is a member of a household currently receiving CalFresh or FDPIR benefits or an assistance unit receiving CalWORKs or Kin-GAP benefits.  School officials will notify households of their eligibility, but those who do not want their child(ren) to receive free meals must contact the school.
