Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services Department of the South San Francisco Unified School district is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. Our department is comprised of 50 staff members, serving approximately 720,000 meals in a school year. The National Registry of Food Safety Professionals certifies all of our school site personnel. 

The department director, Linda Carrozzi is a Registered Dietitian. The mission of the department is to adhere to the nutrition standards in meals provided by the National School Lunch Programand School Breakfast Program.   

We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.Taking into account the national guidelines, meals are prepared with emphasis on food quality, increasing fiber while reducing the amount of fats and sodium. We strive to provide meals that are affordable while maintaining nutritional value.
