Child Nutrition and the District Vision

Child Nutrition is proud to be a member of the educational team at the Carlsbad Unified School District serving your children. We serve over 650,000 meals per school year, through the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch programs.

Meals are also served during the summer school program. The National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs strive to ensure that all children have access to healthy meals at school to promote learning readiness and healthy eating behaviors. Children who aren’t hungry feel better, learn better, and behave better. As a partner in education, our support staff works diligently to provide nutritious food in a safe and healthy environment. 

About the Department

Nutrition Services is a self-sufficient enterprise, and all revenues earned from food sales are used to maintain the department staffing, equipment, food and supplies, and training. Our payment policies are in place to help us sustain our financial status in the district. We hope that you find this helpful. Nutrition Services is located at the district office at 6225 El Camino Real. Please feel free to contact us at (760) 331-5085, if you should have any questions or concerns regarding Nutrition Services.
