Child Nutrition Program
Our goal is to serve nutritious, well-balanced meals that appeal to students and the school community that meet the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program requirements. Information on our standards can be accessed here.
The District utilizes a computerized POS (Point of Sale) system that stores student allergy information, if applicable. Please contact your child’s school nurse to ensure this information is up to date.
In an effort to facilitate contactless serving, cash payments are strongly discouraged. Parents are encouraged to utilize MySchoolBucks to provide elctronic funds for student lunch payments.
Online payments for food purchases may be made by establishing an account with MySchoolBucks.com. To establish an account, a student ID number is required which can be found on the Infinite Campus Parent Portal or by contacting your child’s school office.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to call Eric Nickelson, our Aramark Food Service Director:
Child Nutrition Services Department at 271-2191 ext 2690
or contact via E-mail: Child.Nutrition@chufsd.org.
Thank you for your interest and support of the School Meal Program.
