Food Service & Nutrition
The GUHSD Food & Nutrition Department is dedicated to supporting the educational process by providing nutritious, affordable meals to students. We strive to provide students with access to a wide assortment of foods that are both appealing and nutritious. Meals, foods, and beverages sold or served at our schools are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Why School Meals Are Not Free in the 2022-2023 School Year
Beginning August 8, 2022, the federal government is no longer providing free school meals. The USDA made it possible for school nutrition programs to serve all students free breakfast and lunch through waivers. Congress did not extend these waivers for the upcoming school year, so we will go back to regularly priced breakfast and lunch.
We recommend submitting a Free & Reduced Price Meals application by clicking on the link to the right.
