food Services

Our Food Services Department assures that our district's students receive nutritional and enjoyable meals (both breakfast and lunch are provided). Parents can pay for their child's meals with our convenient online payment service. School lunch menus are updated monthly.

The Fountain Hills Unified School District is proud to be part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Lunches are required by NSLP guidelines to provide at least one-third of a child’s Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for calories, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. Breakfast contains one-fourth of the RDA for these nutrients. On average, meals are planned to provide 30% or less of total calories from fat and 10% or less from saturated fat. Our elementary and middle schools offer salad bars, while the high school offers freshly prepared salads—this helps reinforce "healthy" food choices. In accordance with this, we have removed all deep fryers and only serve baked snack chips and reduced fat cookies. All menus are analyzed by the NutriKids Program to ensure nutritional requirements are being met.

Arizona Department of Education Provides Free Meals

The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) is participating with all Food and Nutrition Service operators in Arizona to provide free meals to all enrolled children through the end of the school year due to the COVID pandemic. We will serve breakfast and lunch each school day free of charge at all three of our school sites. Please direct any questions to
