Nutrition Services Program & Menu

As of January 2024, CCDS is managing our own Nutrition Services Program, independent of Chico Unified School District. Our goal is to incorporate local and sustainable food sources and educational components into our Nutrition program. Our new menu features healthy, diverse meal options including a fresh fruit and veggie bar. CCDS is proud to provide healthy and tasty school meals for our students!

As our nutrition program grows, our menu will be updated frequently and posted here. We will soon move to a set menu for Winter and Spring. This webpage is your source for the most up-to-date CCDS Nutrition Services menu!

Below is the menu for Spring 2024, which can be downloaded and printed HERE.

Complete the Free & Reduced Meals Form


While all students will receive meals at no cost, we still need every family at CCDS to complete the Free & Reduced Meal Application, available in both English and Spanish. Why?

Even though an approved Free & Reduced Lunch Application is not necessary for students to receive free meals, it is still critically important for you to complete this form in order for our school to receive federal funding.

Completing the Free & Reduced Lunch Application allows us to receive federal funding for things like:

  • Additional classroom teachers to ensure reduced class sizes
  • Academic facilitators & instructional coaches
  • Additional funding for instructional supplies and materials
  • Additional technology devices
  • Professional development for teachers
  • Educational software programs

In short, if families don't complete the form, our student needs will not be accurately represented, and we won't get the funding we need to support our students.

The Free & Reduced Lunch Application is available for download in English and Spanish. We will also have hard copies at our Back to School Night and will set aside time for every family to complete it then. Let's get to 100% completion!
