Welcome to Child Nutrition
Palmdale School District is pleased to continue offering breakfast and lunch to all enrolled students at no charge for the 2023-2024 school year. Elementary students receive breakfast in the classroom after the bell, and students attending our Magnet Academies are welcomed into the cafeteria for breakfast one half hour before the start of the school day. Palmdale Academy Charter School students are offered a grab-and-go breakfast as they enter the gate.
Students enrolled in after-school programs receive a supper and snack at no charge through participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Supper is served immediately after the school day ends, with a snack two hours later. Children enrolled in Early Childhood Education Programs, including Head Start, Early Head Start, and State Preschool, also receive free meals and snacks through CACFP.
If you are new to our district, including kindergarten students or students who did not complete this in the past since November 1, 2022, please submit an Education Benefits Form by clicking the link. This short survey ensures that maximum funding is available for each school and classroom. The data collected in this survey is confidential and not considered a public charge.
Our team of over 200 Child Nutrition professionals, serving nearly 25,000 meals daily, is dedicated to supporting the education of our students through healthful and delicious meals. Our in-house chefs develop recipes and create menus based on our diverse student body, and our Student Menu Committees provide direct and actionable feedback. We welcome you to join our Community Menu and Wellness Committee meetings to learn more and see how you can become involved.
If you have any questions or want more information, please contact the Child Nutrition office at (661) 789-6565 or e-mail the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. We value your feedback and appreciate your support as we nourish the future of Palmdale.
