Meals & Nutrition

The Salt Lake City School District recognizes that a poor diet negatively impacts students’ health, and their ability and motivation to learn. The child nutrition program provides students access to the varied and nutritious foods they need to stay healthy and energized to succeed year round.


PLEASE BE AWARE - Many of the grants and waivers available during the pandemic are no longer available, and school meals are no longer free to all children. Households who need assistance purchasing school meals must apply for Free and Reduced Price Meal benefits or qualify by direct certification.
