The Child Nutrition Services Department at Coronado Unified School District works to surpass the standard nutrition requirements while also creating meals and an environment that is attractive to students.

In adhering to nutritional standards, we not only follow the strict guidelines set forth by the State of California, but also those stated in the Student Wellness section of the Governing Board’s by-laws. We understand that health in our students needs to be cultivated in the classroom as well as at lunchtime. Nutrition is important, but so is encouraging children to actually eat the food. After all, what good is healthy food if they refuse to eat it? We also realize that we must create a conducive and attractive food service environment. The Island Café is especially designed and constructed to create a desirable ambiance. On the whole, we seek to serve students on both a nutritional level and an enjoyment level.

Grab and Go Meals

Our district was not approved by the state to distribute grab and go meals any longer. Though, there are opportunities for those families that could benefit from a program like this. The Chula Vista public libraries will be offering many free programs this summer including free lunch and snack to children between the ages of 1-18 years old. Click here for more information.
