Welcome to Food and Nutrition Services!

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Burbank Unified School District Food and Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and
federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.
We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing
foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of our students.


For the 2021-2022 school year ALL students can eat for

FREE in the cafeteria

Funds can be placed on your student's meal account for purchase of limited snack items at the Middle and High Schools only.

Elementary students will have to bring cash to purchase snack items.

Filling out a Meal Application is still very important as your student may qualify for other benefits based on your household income – Please see below.

National School Meal Programs:

The Burbank Unified School District takes part in the
National School Lunch and National School Breakfast Programs.


The National School Meal Programs dictate that all of our children must be offered a complete meal through the Food Service Department which meets the nutritional guidelines of the USDA.

A complete Nutrition (Breakfast) meal consists of 1 entree item of grain, 1 meat or meat alternative may be offered, 1/2 cup fruit or 4 oz juice, and 1 milk. A student must take at least 3 different food items out of the 4 food items offered but may take all 4. At least 1 food item must be fruit or juice.

A complete Lunch meal consists of 1 entree item of meat or meat alternative and grain, 1 milk, 1/2 cup fruit or 4 oz juice, and 1/2 cup vegetable. A student must take at least 3 food components out of the 5 food items offered but may take all 5. At least 1 component must be fruit or vegetable. 

A choice of 2 or more fruits, juice, and vegetables are offered daily as well as Fat-Free and 1% Low Fat milk.

Individual food items that are nutritionally compliant are available on an "a la carte" basis. Snack items, such as milk, bottled water, pizza slice, and cookies may be available for individual purchase in the cafeteria but do not qualify for inclusion in the National School Meal Programs.
