Food Services Department

The mission of the Rincon Valley Union School District Food Services Department is to make a significant contribution to the general well- being and learning ability of each student. This will be achieved by providing students with a healthy, nutritious, appetizing meal served courteously, in a clean, pleasant and fun environment. We will also help support school values that will benefit not only the child, but society as a whole.

Rincon Valley Union School District's meals are healthy, tasty, and affordable. We take pride in our menu creation process. We actively solicit feedback from our students to help ensure that we are serving food that our students love to eat!

BREAKFAST: Our breakfasts consist of primarily whole grain products. Breakfast also includes a choice of fruit, 1 percent lowfat or non-fat white milk.

LUNCH: We offer both hot and cold lunches. Every lunch includes fresh fruit and vegetables, a healthy carbohydrate and lean protein, and 1 percent lowfat white milk or non-fat chocolate milk.
