The West Contra Costa Unified School District Food Services Department is committed to providing healthy school meals and snacks to the students of the West Contra Costa School District. The team of dedicated food and nutrition professionals supports student academic abc success and promotes healthful eating habits that lead to lifelong positive nutrition practices.

School meals are served to students under the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program and follow the nutrition guidelines prescribed by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The law was designed to reduce the incidence of childhood obesity by providing healthier choices to students. To learn more about school meal regulations visit www.traytalk.org 
 
 

these standards include:

  • Increased produce options, ensuring that students receive both fruits and vegetables every day of the week.
  • A ban on unhealthy trans fats.
  • Portion size guidelines and calorie limits based on the age of children served.
  • Increased emphasis on whole grain products.
  • Limits on the types of milk served, with an emphasis on low fat (1%) and non-fat varieties.
  • Reductions in sodium levels to be phased in over several years.
