Our mission is to create and maintain a healthy learning environment for all students by providing nutritious, chef-designed, globally inspired meals in a welcoming and inclusive environment.



Modesto City Schools participates in a program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.  CEP allows eligible schools and groups of schools to serve breakfast and lunch at no charge to students.

Students at the following schools will be offered a healthy breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE:

Elementary Schools:

Beard, Bret Harte, Burbank, El Vista, Enslen, Everett, Fairview, Franklin, Fremont, Garrison, Kirschen, Lakewood, Marshall, Martone, Muir, Robertson Road, Rose Avenue, Shackelford, Sonoma, Tuolumne, Wilson, Orville Wright.

We request all parents speak with their children to encourage them to eat school breakfast and lunch every day.  The District looks forward to serving nutritious, well-balanced meals to your children all year long. 


What does this mean for you and your child(ren) attending a school listed above?

All students enrolled at schools listed above are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no charge to your household each day of the 2019-2020 school year.

No further action is required of you.  Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
