Nutrition Services

Providing nourishing meals that support student learning and health

Kennewick School District and our service partners Sodexo understand that the most effective education environments are those that nourish the body alongside the mind, recognizing that one cannot grow without the other. Academic success relies on meals that are fresh, nutritious, tasty, and customized to the diverse needs and desires of the student body. Our goal is to provide meal options that keep students healthy, focused, and energetic.

Services provided:

  • Menus for school meals.
  • Online access to manage student lunch money balance.
