SCHOOL SITES

The LUSD Food Service Department (FSD) includes Franklin Elementary School, Loomis Grammar School, Placer Elementary School, H Clarke Powers School, Penryn Elementary School, and Ophir Elementary School.

GOAL

The goal of the LUSD FSD is to provide high quality, attractive, nutritious meals to all students within the program. Approximately 1,300 lunches are served each day to students in our program. Twelve percent of the enrolled student body qualify for free or reduced price meals.

EMPLOYMENT

LUSD Food Service Department employs 15 people and has a reliable support staff of substitute employees.

FUNDING

LUSD FSD is a fiscally sound program within the LUSD District. It operates on a $550,000 budget and is expected to maintain a positive fund balance and to contribute to the general fund to recover indirect costs such as utilities and support staff, along with other expenses incurred in the maintenance of the program and its equipment. Federal and state regulations include strict record keeping and accountability requirements in order to receive reimbursement for meals served. LUSD FSD consistently looks for innovative ways to increase cost effectiveness and to optimize purchasing power.

NUTRITION

Research has shown that there is a crucial relationship between nutrition and health, as well as between nutrition and learning. LUSD FSD participates in the USDA’s National School Lunch, Summer Food Service and Commodity Distribution Programs. USDA regulations guide our programs. Monthly menus are planned to meet the USDA specifications based on the Dietary Guideline for Americans. Meals are to be low in fat, sodium and sugar, but provide sufficient calories to meet needs of growing children.

LOGISTICS

The department arranges deliveries to each school site weekly where the meals are prepared and served daily. All sites are staffed with ServSafe certified employees. We always welcome the thoughts and ideas from parents within our District.
