Office of School Nutrition

  • The Office of School Nutrition supports the educational development of our students by providing healthy breakfast and hot nutritional lunch to all students in grades K-12 at no charge. On-site preparation ensures that meals are served hot in compliance with federal, state and local health department regulations. All menus adhere to the guidelines of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Office of School Nutrition serves more than 85,000 healthy meals daily through the following programs: 

    • Breakfast in the Classroom - DPSCD was the first school district in the country to make the free Universal Breakfast program available to all students. Breakfast meals are served at the beginning of the school day either in the classroom or the cafeteria. 
    • National School Lunch Programs - DPSCD provides free, freshly-cooked food items to all students in grades K-12 through our modified scratch cooking program, where meals are developed using homestyle cooking techniques, served fresh and hot on-site to students in every school. Our menus include a healthy array of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole wheat/whole grain bread and pizza, low fat and low sodium meat, meatless options, fresh salads, 100% fruit juices and 1%,  fat-free and chocolate milk.
    • Supper Programs - DPSCD offers free, healthy “At-Risk, After-School Supper Programs” throughout the district in support of after-school tutorial and enrichment programs.
    • Summer Food Service Program - This direct meal service program ensures the City of Detroit youth is protected from hunger during the summer.

Household Survey (S4 Form)

  • Parents and guardians may access the link to complete the Household Survey (S4 Form)

    Completing the form is critical in determining the amount of money that our schools receive from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs, like Title I A, At-risk (31a), Title II A, E-Rate, etc.

    These supplemental programs have the potential to offer support and services for our students including, but not limited to: 

    • Instructional support (staff, supplies & materials, etc.) 
    • Non-instructional services (counseling, social work, health services, bus passes, fee waivers for college applications and ACT tests, etc.) 
    • Professional Learning for staff 
    • Parent and Community engagement supplies and activities 
    • Technology
