Welcome to Nutrition Services!
Dear Parents/Teachers/Administration of Red Bluff Union High School,
The Food Services Department here at Red Bluff Union High School is committed to providing healthy school meals and snacks to all students. The team of dedicated food and nutrition professionals support student academic success and promotes healthful eating habits that lead to lifelong positive nutrition practices.
School meals are served to students under the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program and follow the nutrition guidelines prescribed by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The law was designed to reduce the incidence of childhood obesity by providing healthier choices to students.
The winning recipe for a healthy lifestyle includes a combination of both good nutrition and physical activity. Your body needs a variety of nutrient rich foods to grow and prevent illness. And your body also needs to move and exercise every day.
Well-nourished students have higher test scores, increased school attendance, improved concentration, and improved classroom behavior. Students, who are physically fit, sleep better and are better able to handle the physical and emotional challenges that they encounter during the day.
Student Lunch $3.00 per meal
The Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals (covering school breakfast and lunch) is now online.
You can type your information on the form, print it off, sign it and return it to the main campus office, cafeteria office or any snack bar window at Red Bluff Union High School. Make sure you include the last four digits of your social security number or write “none” if you don’t have one. We strongly urge you to apply for the meal program. Your student’s status in the program will never be overtly identified.
