SMUSD is excited to announce that in the 2022-23 school year all students will receive free breakfast and lunch at all SMUSD schools. 

SMUSD Nutrition Services is also working with local growers to bring fresh seasonal produce and dishes to schools, as well as new menu items based on student feedback including:
A Chipotle-style build-your-own-burrito bar
Ramen bowls
Tikka masala
Strawberry and avocado salad (seasonal)
Vegetarian lunch options
