As Kids Head Back to School…

Chandler Unified School District is proud to be a part of the Healthy, Hunger- Free Act, which is providing millions of children with improved, healthy meals.

Wesley Delbrige, registered dietician and director of food and nutrition at CUSD, wants parents to know “Parents can trust that when they send their kids to school, they will have access to healthy, nutritious food – more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, less salt, sugar and fat.”

As the new school year begins, you can expect to see increased amounts of fruits and vegetables and decreased amounts of fat. Our menu will also include more whole grains and work to significantly reduced sodium content. You can feel assured that higher quantities of nutrients are being provided to your children.

CUSD is also pleased to be apart of the Farm to School Program – bringing fresh foods in from local farms. This program works to expose children to new varieties of fresh, local foods.

CUSD Nutrition is continually working to advance their menu with a variety of healthful options. Our nutrition department loves to hear the input of parents, so we can continue working to improve our menus.
