Child Nutrition Education Center




  • Meal service will continue as normal through Wednesday, March 18. Beginning Thursday, March 19 lunch will be provided at Cunningham, Crowell, Julien, Osborn, Wakefield, and TJHS from 11-12:30 PM on a grab-and-go basis. Any child between the ages of 2 and 18 can get a free meal from any of these TUSD campuses; they do not need to be enrolled in a TUSD school nor go to their school of enrollment but the child does need to be present. We will be exploring additional meal distribution options.

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.
