About Us

  • The Child Nutrition Education Center is responsible for operating the National School Lunch Program and Summer Feeding Program for Turlock Unified School District. Our Food Service team strives to serve nutritious meals that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and their ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activities. We support our students by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and physical fitness. 

    Studies show that healthy eating and daily physical activity have a profound impact on the body and mind by improving the ability to learn and comprehend, boosting energy, improving school attendance, and changing attitudes, behavior and more. Children who are healthy perform better academically. By educating our children about nutrition and exercise we develop the minds of the ones we serve.

    Please visit our website often for menu changes and other updates.
