Back to School: Meal Application Time!


The 2015-2016 school year is upon us, which means a brand new opportunity to take part in meals with SFUSD. From exciting new menu items, to more and exciting ways to bring food from the kitchen to your plate, SFUSD’s dining program has spent the summer planning better ways to feed students.

How do you join the table and take part in meals with SFUSD? The first step is to fill out a Meal Application Form! The Meal Application Form is an opportunity for Student Nutrition Services & all the people that bring meals to SFUSD to understand you and your food preferences a little bit better. SFUSD also receives state dollars for every application turned in, which are important funds in enabling us to purchase higher quality ingredients meaning better food and improved service overall. So even if you don't plan to buy school meals, filling out an application can help provide more nutrituous meals for your classmates. 

It may seem like a scary official document but we promise it’s not and we’re here to help! We’ve put together this guide to the Meal Application Form and other dining basics, and the friendly folks at Student Nutrition Services are available to support you in filling out the application:



New Menu Items

Thanks to feedback and ideas from SFUSD students, we have introduced several new meals to the menu! Many were designed or named by students, including:

  • Hawaiian Meatballs with Island Style Rice 
  • Pizza Panada Pie a favorite of Gordon Lau students.
  • Smoky Sausage Rice Bowl a lunch-time version of the Sunshine Breakfast Bowl
  • Burgerito 'nuff said
  • Muffins new and improved and in a variety of great flavors


Re-envisioning Dining Experience

SFUSD's Future Dining Experience has been working hard to rethink the way that students at SFUSD experience food at school. From redesigned dining areas, to thought leadership on school food innovation, we invite you to follow our effort to develop a financially stable food system that provides fresh, healthy meals to students as they grow.
