The Healthy Schools Project uses school gardens and kitchen classrooms to transform curious youth into healthy adults.

We’re glad you stopped by!  We are passionate about serving your child healthy, delicious meals to prepare them to learn.  You can be confident when your child dines with us knowing our meals meet the high nutrition standards of the Healthy Hungry Free Kids Act.  Check out all the options available to your child here on this website. Healthy living is all about making healthy choices.  We’ve provided numerous resources for students, parents and educators to have all the tools for healthy eating and daily exercise.  Let us know if we can help you on your journey toward a healthy lifestyle.

*Ventura Unified School District is not responsible for food once it has left the district pick up site

*Check out what’s new: Salad bar Farms!  A fifth acre farm is currently under construction at Balboa Middle School.  The farm will produce lettuce and carrots for neighboring schools.  There will also be a learning garden area for the students!  Projects like this need a lot of support from our community.  If you are interested in helping make this a success, please contact Ashley Parrish-Decker in Food & Nutrition at 805-641-5000.
