Nutrition Services


The Gunnison Watershed School District’s Nutrition Services offers healthful and tasty breakfasts and lunches at each school.  Meals are available for students and staff during service times. Parents are invited to visit our cafeterias and eat with us!  Lunch may be brought from home.

Our District participates in the
National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. This means that the free and reduced meals are reimbursed through the USDA. To receive reimbursement, the District complies with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 and other guidelines. Among other standards, the HHFKA addresses childhood obesity with nutritional guidelines including more fruits and vegetables, whole grains in place of refined grains, limited sodium and saturated fat, and no trans fat.
