Welcome to Child Nutrition

  • Palmdale School District is pleased to continue offering breakfast and lunch to all enrolled students at no charge for the 2022-2023 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 prior to the start of the school day.  Palmdale Academy Charter School students are offered a grab-and-go breakfast as they enter the gate. 


    New for this school year, students enrolled in after-school programs will 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.


    If you are new to our district, including kindergarten students or students who did not complete this in the past since November 1, 2021, please submit an Education Benefit Form: benefitform.palmdalesd.org


    This short survey ensures the maximum funding is available for each of our schools and classrooms.  The data collected in this survey is kept confidential and is not considered a public charge. 


    Our team of nearly 200 Child Nutrition professionals serving over 20,000 meals daily is dedicated to supporting the education of our students through healthful and delicious meals.  Our District Chef dines with students weekly to ensure students are served meals they enjoy and our Student Menu Committees provide direct and actionable feedback.  We welcome you to join our Wellness Committee meetings to learn more and see how you can become involved. 


    If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the Child Nutrition office at (661) 789-6565 or e-mail the Director at adwoods@palmdalesd.org.  We value your feedback and appreciate your support as we nourish the future of Palmdale.
