    Summer Feeding Programs for San Diego County/ Distribución de Alimentos Durante el Verano en el Condado de San Diego

    On May 15, 2020, the Del Mar Union School District Child Nutrition Department sent  an email detailing the P-EBT card that you may be eligible for and a call was also made on June 16, 2020.  The email and call were to remind you that because your student receives free or reduced priced lunches for the 2019-2020 school year, you are eligible for the P-EBT Card.  This is a $365 pre-paid card  for each child in your family.  The card is there to help feed your family while schools have been closed due to COVIS-19.  You may have already received your card(s) in the mail.  If you have not, but feel you qualify, you should apply for the card immediately.  You may apply now through July 15, 2020. 

    The application is only 5 questions long.  Due to the large number of applications that have been submitted, it is taking a few weeks to process the information.  Please visit https://ca.p-ebt.org/en/ to apply or for more information go to https://www.cdss.ca.gov/home/pandemic-ebt .

    If you have any further questions, please email the Child Nutrition Services Department here.

    CalFresh Benefits: How to Apply

    Welcome to the Del Mar Union School District Child Nutrition Services Department 

    All Del Mar Union School District Lunches are provided by Choicelunch and are ordered through LunchIsServed.com!
  • Our School Lunch Program

    Child Nutrition Services exists to provide excellent meal service to students through the foods we serve, the interactions we have, and the customer service we provide to families, students, and administrators. 

    Del Mar Union School District continues to participate in the National School Lunch Program.  For students, this program provides nutritious meals that comply with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.  For parents, the National School Lunch Program enhances students’ learning abilities by contributing to their physical and mental well-being.  Studies show that children whose nutritional needs are met have fewer attendance and disciplinary problems and are more attentive in class.

    Nutrition In School

    In Del Mar, we are firm believers that eating nutritious and healthy meals directly impacts students’ ability to learn and focus while in school.  We are dedicated to providing the best possible quality foods for our students while presenting them with many choices to expand their knowledge of healthy foods and healthy eating habits.  We advise all parents to view our district’s Wellness Policy (available in the quick links section of this page) and to encourage your students to participate in the School Lunch Program.

    We look forward to serving you this year.
