Child Nutrition Services

The Olympia School District Child Nutrition Breakfast and Lunch programs have received a lot of high marks for our use of fresh fruits and vegetables and organic food offerings. Breakfast is available at selected schools and all district students may purchase a variety of hot lunch selections or fresh fruit and vegetables. We provide free and reduced-price meals for eligible students.

How do I get a refund for fees I have paid already to my child’s school?

Families that would like an ASB refund (where cards were purchased just for the spring season), a lunch account refund, or a different type of refund, please email [email protected]. In the email, please list the item for refund, the child’s name and school associated with the fee, and your contact information.

School Meals FAQ for Parents/Teachers

The Board of Education has given our School Meals program a dual mandate: to provide convenient, economical, healthy meals for our students so that they can learn well and to break even financially. Please visit this page, as we have provided answers to the questions we hear most often.

Wellness is a Way of Life!

The need for students to eat more healthful foods and get more exercise is getting a lot of attention in schools these days.  Over the last several school years we've been putting in place a number of changes to make our meals even more nutritious for our customers.  For example, all of the meals we serve for breakfast or lunch must include fruit or vegetable servings.  In addition, snack and beverage items sold during school hours must meet specific nutrition standards.
