Food Services

Good nutrition plays a key role in the healthy development of young minds and bodies, and at Santa Cruz Valley, we are committed to giving our students every opportunity for success and well-being. That's why we provide healthy and appetizing meals that comply with USDA regulations and dietary guidelines.

We look forward to another successful year at Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District #35. Our mission is to make sure our students have a healthy and nutritious breakfast and lunch to help fuel their minds, as well as their bodies for a succesful school day. Your voice is important to us. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please email them to me.

Printing Menus

In an effort to care for our environment and avoid wasting paper by printing unnecessary duplicates, we make hard copies readily available in each school office and no longer send printed menus home with each of our students. Instead, we encourage you to visit the Sodexo website to download and/or print the monthly menu at your convenience.
