Meal Program

At CSMH, students are served breakfast and lunch. We contract with The LunchMaster who delivers freshly made food to our campus each day. CSMH participates in the CA Universal Meals Program. Breakfast and lunch are offered daily at no charge to all students.  For a preview of May 2024 monthly menu, please click here.
Breakfast is served daily between 7:35 a.m. - 10:10 a.m.
Lunch is served daily between 11:40 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.
Menus are subject to change.

Want to know about sugar? There are currently no limits on sugar. However, new rules are being proposed!

This rule proposes a two-phase approach for limiting added sugars in the school lunch and breakfast programs.  

  1. Product-based limits: Beginning in school year (SY) 2025-26, the rule proposes limits on products that are the leading sources of added sugars in school meals:  
    1. Grain-based desserts (cereal bars, doughnuts, sweet rolls, toaster pastries, coffee cakes, and fruit turnovers) would be limited to no more than 2 ounce equivalents per week in school breakfast, consistent with the current limit for school lunch.  
    2. Breakfast cereals would be limited to no more than 6 grams of added sugars per dry ounce. This would apply to CACFP as well, replacing the current total sugars limit. 
    3. Yogurts would be limited to no more than 12 grams of added sugars per 6 ounces.  
    4. Flavored milks would be limited to no more than 10 grams of added sugars per 8 fluid ounces for milk served with school lunch or breakfast. For flavored milk sold outside of the meal (as a competitive beverage for middle and high school students), the limit would be 15 grams of added sugars per 12 fluid ounces.  
  2. Overall weekly limit: Beginning in SY 2027-28, this rule proposes limiting added sugars to an average of less than 10% of calories per meal, for both school breakfasts and lunches. This weekly limit would be in addition to the product-based limits described above.  
Free and Reduced Meal Application
Even though CSMH participates in the CA Universal Meals Program and serves free meals to all students, we strongly encourage families to complete the Free and Reduced Lunch Application. Having accurate numbers of students who qualify for this program assists the school in receiving money.
