Healthy School Menus

For School Menus

Students who are well-fed are more likely to be focused and ready to learn. The Sarasota County School District has long been a leader in serving delicious, nutritious school meals, using locally grown products whenever possible.

The district’s Food and Nutrition Services Department serves about 32,000 meals each day. Approximately 50% of our students currently receive free or reduced-price meals. Eligible parents are encouraged to apply online for their children to receive free or reduced-price meals throughout the school year, including breakfast and lunch. Some schools offer free breakfast to all students.
