Nutrition Services

Our Estacada Nutrition Services department is leading the way in fueling students' nutritional needs for educational success!

General Information

     In Estacada School District our school lunches offer a complete selection of foods for students to enjoy. The food we serve is made from wholesome, whole grain, low fat, and low sodium ingredients, and fruits and vegetables are offered daily. Students are encouraged to come back for as many fruits and vegetables as they want, and many of the foods served in ESD cafeterias are Oregon-grown.

Our lunch and breakfast menus are constantly evolving as local foods are in season and the tastes of our students change. Our schools host tasting events in school cafeterias to introduce students to new and nutritious foods while giving students input into their cafeteria menu. We do our best to serve students quickly and always with a smile, and we appreciate our students and families' help to keep lunch accounts current.

Meal assistance is also available for eligible families. To avoid paying full price for meals, please complete your Application for Free & Reduced Meals before school starts or before the meal benefit grace period ends if you had meal benefits the previous year. Benefits from the previous school year expire annually near the beginning of October. To avoid a lapse in meal benefits, apply before October as there is a 10-business-day processing period. Applications for the new year become available after July 1st. For more information, please contact us at your convenience.


The Electronic Confidential Application for Free & Reduced Meals is available online - apply today. Applications can be completed at any time. To avoid accruing meal balances please apply as early as July 1st every year. Benefits expire annually unless you re-apply and are approved. Applications are also available in the school office.
