Food Service News: Welcome Back! Posted 8/20/18


Dear Parents and Caregivers:

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year.  I hope you and your families had a wonderful summer break!

We have an exciting year ahead of us, full of big changes and delicious/healthy food!

This year we have 4 schools that have been awarded Community Eligibility Provision Status (CEP).  These schools are:  McPherson, Phillips, Shearer, and Snow.  This means that these students at those schools are entitled to a free breakfast and lunch every day.

We welcome a new breakfast program to Browns Valley Elementary School and soon to come at Donaldson Way Elementary School.

Construction has just begun on our new central kitchen/warehouse facility at 1360 Menlo Ave. Napa.  This location will serve as the district’s Food Service Department office, food warehouse storage facility and state of the art elementary production kitchen.  We look forward to moving in by January 1!

We will also open our first of many elementary renovated kitchen/multipurpose sites at Willow Elementary School in Oct.

Now onto the food-

This year we will continue to improve our menu and serve fresh and nutrition food every day.  Some highlights of this year’s menu are:

  • Hormone/antibiotic free, organic, non-gmo, hyper-local Beef Burgers from Marin Sun
  • Hormone/antibiotic free and CA grown, roasted Chicken Drumsticks from Foster Farms
  • Whole grain Potstickers with housemade Chicken Fried Rice
  • Green Chile + Cheese Tamales from a local, clean label company

We are committed to featuring only fresh CA grown fruits and vegetables on all our salad bars throughout the year.

This year we are also branding our food services program to call attention to our new and improved food program.  You will start to see the NOSH logo on information.  NOSH stands for Napa’s Operative for School food Health and we are excited to roll this out.

The students of NVUSD will have daily access to fresh and healthy food options, and I hope you join me in encouraging them to participate in our school breakfast and lunch programs.

This is going to be an inspiring and exciting year for food services!

Thank you for your support!

Brandy Dreibelbis    

Director of Food Services
