What Makes EUSD's Lunch Program Different?

Encinitas USD Child Nutrition Services is committed to serving the healthiest meals around! We focus on scratch-made entrees that feature locally sourced produce and proteins, often grown on our own certified organic Farm Lab. We serve responsibly-sourced, sustainably raised meats whenever possible. Our pizza is made fresh in house, with a whole grain pizza dough made fresh daily and pizza sauce made with Farm Lab organic tomatoes, bell peppers and herbs. Our daily unlimited salad bars are a main focus of our school lunch, packed with local and organic produce for students to choose from. Often featuring organic EUSD Farm Lab grown produce, local fruits and vegetables and a variety of other toppings.
