The Food Services Division provides nutritious meals to students. Everyone eats and can enjoy a breakfast, lunch, and supper meal at no cost.
The Los Angeles Unified School District’s Food Services Division operates the largest School Breakfast Program (SBP) and the second largest National School Lunch Program (NSLP) in the United States. Our meal programs are structured under the regulatory guidance of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and are served at more than 680 cafeterias, 90 child and adult care centers, and 100+ off-site programs each day.
The Division is committed to serving healthy, tasty menu options for students and providing nutrition education by implementing resolutions of the LAUSD Board of Education: Good Food Procurement Resolution and the Improving Food and Nutrition Policy (2012). Student input drives the selection of new menu items by conducting taste testing throughout the District. New items must have a 70% overall student approval rating to be placed on the menu.
