Prescott Unified School District’s Food and Nutrition Services considers it a privilege and a very important responsibility to plan, prepare, and serve nutritious meals to all students. While our goal is to always provide a quality product, great service, and a clean dining environment, we also know that we need to serve meals that the students enjoy and also to meet the dietary guidelines for Americans.
For our food service program to be a complete success, it is imperative that both students and parents have a basic understanding of how the food service program operates. The links and information provided on this page give you that knowledge. Please take a few moments to acquaint yourself with this information, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding our school lunch and breakfast programs.
We sincerely appreciate your support and participation in our school lunch program and look forward to serving you.

On a daily basis, we also prepare a food bar that offers a selection of mixed salad, fruits, vegetables, and rolls. These items are available in addition to the choices listed on the menu.
We encourage parents to take an active role in developing their child’s nutritional habits. Talk to your child about the importance of eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and limiting the fat in their diet. Please support our efforts in providing all children with the best possible nutritional basics he or she needs for education today and a healthy lifestyle tomorrow.

Field Trips and Meals
Parents no longer have to pack a sack lunch for field trips. The Food and Nutrition Department makes them for you! All mom or dad needs to do is sign up when your child brings home the field trip note.
Lunches consist of a Super Sub – a 6″ hoagie style bun stuffed full of turkey, ham, and American cheese – condiments, a bag of vegetable sticks, fresh fruits, one of our special chocolate chip cookies and a milk.
All lunches are packed in coolers with ice blocks.
There is no extra charge for this service. When your child signs up for the field trip sack lunch, his or her account is adjusted just as if they were eating a hot lunch that day. If your child does not have a lunch account, the cost for the sack lunch is the same as the hot lunch.
