Each school day, nearly 11,000 Pueblo City Schools’ students eat lunch and 10,000 students eat breakfast made possible by the district’s Nutrition Services Department.
Elementary school students may choose from two menu choices, including student favorites like chicken nuggets, bean burrito with green chili, chicken fried steak, and sandwiches. Middle and high school students enjoy up to four menu choices daily, including a variety of Mexican foods, subs, salads, pizza and the traditional meals. All meals include a selection of 4 servings of fruits, vegetables, and one percent or skim milk.
Pueblo City Schools is participating in a Universal Lunch and School Breakfast Program for the current school year (2016-2017). If your children attend Pueblo City Schools, Pueblo School for the Arts and Sciences or Chavez Huerta Preparatory Academy, breakfast and lunch will be available to them at no charge. All students enrolled at these schools may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them. Snack items and adult meals will be available for sale each day.
Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing lunch to all children at no charge, we are hoping to create a better learning environment for our students.
The school breakfasts and lunches that we serve follow U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs cannot succeed without your support; please encourage your children to participate in the school meal programs.
