Child Nutrition

We provide healthy foods that are fresh, local, and made from scratch, because we believe kids come first!

For the 2021-2022 school year students may receive daily one FREE breakfast AND one FREE lunch at no cost.

We have become “CASHLESS” which means we are unable to accept any cash or check payments at the school kitchen or the school office.

There are 3 ways to make a deposit into student accounts:

  • Make a online deposit -see link below.
  • Mail a check to: OUSD, ATTN: Child Nutrition Dept, 500 Dyer St, Orcutt CA 93455
  • Bring check to the Child Nutrition Office 500 Dyer St, Building “B” between 7:30am to 10:00am.

Due to COVID-19 the California Department of Education has required us to stop distributing (online or paper) Free & Reduced Meal Applications. Instead, we are asking families to fill out the “Household Data Collection” form. If your student is already approved for the Free & Reduced Meal Program you do not need to to do anything further. If your student has not been approved please fill out the “Data Household Collection” form. The district relies on additional supplement funding to support programs for students.

The “Household Data Collection” form is located below in the download section below. Please mail to: OUSD, Child Nutrition Dept., 500 Dyer St, Orcutt CA 93455. Drop off: OUSD in the blue USPS box at the entrance. Or email to:
