Food Services

The Child Nutrition Program at Union Public School District provides nutritious, well-balanced meals during the school year for the students at each school site. Meals and beverages served at school meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All menus are nutritionally analyzed to ensure compliance. UPSD participates in the National School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program.
