South San Francisco, CA November 6, 2020
As we continue to navigate the tremendous challenges this year has brought about, our South San Francisco School District remains a stable resource, especially for those youth in need of food. Our School District Nutrition Services Department is working hard to ensure our kids receive healthy meals 7 days a week by reducing processed foods in favor of dishes freshly cooked locally sourced produce.
“We cook a lot of items in our central kitchen and have excellent vegetarian options.” said Fran Debost, Director of SSFUSD Nutrition Services “We are so excited to be able to use the staff who usually works at the school sites to develop scratch cooking!”
New items include Hummus, Tabouleh, Wraps and Sandwiches, Grab and Go Salads, Yogurt Parfait, Country Scramble Breakfast Bowl, Oatmeal & Baked Apples, Chicken Parmigiana, Fajita Bowl, Veggie Sushi Bowl, Spicy Veggie Chili, with more options coming.
Free meals are available with a bi-weekly distribution at 3 convenient locations: Spruce Elementary, Westborough Middle School, El Camino High School between the hours of 4:pm – 5:15 pm. On Tuesdays, youths will receive 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches, and on Thursdays 4 breakfasts and 4 lunches. This program is funded by the USDA and the State of California.
Thanksgiving week will see one distribution only, on Tuesday, and Thanksgiving meal must be pre-ordered via forms located at the distribution sites.
