Mission Statement
It is the mission of the Food & Nutrition Department to ensure that all Sunnyside Unified School District students receive healthy and nutritious meals daily to ensure that all students achieve academic success and contribute positively to a diverse, changing, democratic society.

It is the Vision of the Food & Nutrition department to achieve the highest level of happiness and satisfaction with all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and department employees. This includes the delivery of our goods and services in a way that is healthy and fun for students, well-received by our parents, popular with our teachers, trusted by administrators, and sensitive to our employees.

We served over 3.7 million breakfast, lunch, A la Carte and adult lunches in 2014-2015. Every Sunnyside District school provides a Free and Reduced Meals Program for eligible students. All meals served in our schools meet USDA / ADE criteria for nutritious meals.
