CNS Important Update:
CNUSD Parents/Guardians: Keeping you informed is important to us. For this reason, we would like to inform you about an important modification to our menu calendars. Please be advised that you will begin to see this symbol which indicates menu items that contain pork. For example, please see here. Miguel Jr's burritos, which are offered at secondary schools and academies, do contain pork.
Welcome to Child Nutrition Services!
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!
The 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 students.
To learn all about our district's meal guidelines as laid out by the USDA, click here.
All CNUSD schools offer Breakfast for all students every single school day. All items served are whole grain, reduced-sugar, and student tested/approved! Check out our menus and come in for a visit!
Our mission is to nourish the mind, body and spirit by providing high quality, nutritious food and extraordinary services that will create opportunities for all to lead healthy, productive, valuable lives.
Federal Nutrition Standards for School Meals:
Corona-Norco cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your student to choose school lunch!
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size.
School lunches will meet additional standards requiring:
- age-appropriate calorie limits,
- larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce),
- fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free),
- more whole grains,
- and less sodium.

We’re always working to offer Corona-Norco students healthier and tastier choices. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too.
We look forward to welcoming your student to the cafeteria. To get additional facts about school meals visit www.TrayTalk.org. Thank you.
