Welcome to the Anchorage School District Department of Student Nutrition. Our mission is to provide healthy, nutritious and satisfying meals to students throughout the Anchorage School District and support the District’s goal to educate all students for success in life.
The meals, foods and beverages served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We want to serve meals that are not only healthy and good for growing minds and bodies but taste good too. We take pride in providing items that range from familiar brand name items you see at home to things we make from scratch in our central kitchen facility. Our staff takes great pride in the meals they make and serve every day! All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
