Welcome to CUSD Food Services! 


Our Department of Food Services is extremely proud of the accomplishments we are making in our district’s central kitchen. We are excited to bring the skill set of our entire team together to offer innovative and exciting meals to our students! Along with cooking with passion and excitement we also uphold a new standard of food service and production that is entirely based on culinary excellence, nutritional integrity and local procurement practices.



Due to COVID-19 the 2021-2022 school food service offerings, service style, times, and locations may fluctuate. The top priority of the Food Services department at CUSD is the health and safety of our students and staff. The CUSD Food Service team is following the highest health and safety standards in the food service industry. Whether the school year finds students learning through independant study or learning back at school, we will continue to safely serve nutritious and tasty food that we prepare fresh daily. Please stay tuned for more details.


As CUSD and Santa Barbara County Public Health Department update guidance throughout the school year, we will share new information and updates pertaining to the Food Services department. Please stay tuned for menu posts and new programs. Thank you for your continued support!


Over the past year CUSD Food Services has partnered with The Berryman to host “Farmers to Families”, the Food Bank for Picnic in the Park, and No Kid Hungry's Concert Series.  Together we have distributed approximately 50,000 pounds of free fresh fruits and vegetables to our CUSD families. We are happy to be working with local farmers and vendors to provide families with nourishment during this unprecedented time. We hope to host similar programs during the 2021-2022 school year.
