Welcome to the Child Nutrition Department!  We are proud to serve quality, nutritious meals to students so they are well-prepared to learn.  All of our meals are designed and analyzed to meet strict federal guidelines.  In addition, our recipes are revised to reduce fat, sugar, and sodium while increasing fiber content.  The Child Nutrition Department also provides learning experiences in nutrition education and encourages good eating habits to support the health & wellness of every student.

    Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program

    We are proud to announce that Alhambra School District received a grant for eleven schools to participate in the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program offered through the Arizona Department of Education. The selected schools are Barcelona, Carol G. Peck, Catalina Ventura, Cordova Elementary, Granada East, Granada West, James W. Rice, Sevilla East, Sevilla West, R.E. Simpson, and Westwood Primary. Students at these schools will receive a free fresh fruit or vegetable snack twice a week. There are many delicious and nutritious options we provide like sugar snap peas, star fruit, lady apples, and yellow grape tomatoes. In addition to providing new and tasty snacks we will also provide a nutrition education lesson about the fruit or vegetable. This is program is a great way to introduce young children to new fruits and vegetables, and hopefully instill a love for eating healthy.
