    For questions about TITAN and lunch payments, contact Sodexo Food Manager Lupe Pena.

    During 2022-2023, meals are complimentary for students!

    California will become the first state to implement a statewide Universal Meals Program for school children. California’s Universal Meals Program is designed to build on the foundations of the federal National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP). California’s State Meal Mandate is expanded to include both a nutritious adequate breakfast and lunch for not just children in need, but all children each school day.

    Saratoga Union School District offers all students complimentary breakfast and lunch meals. Meals will be available for pickup in the cafeteria during scheduled meal periods (breakfast items are available during morning recess/break, lunch is served during the midday lunch period).

    Meals served are reimbursed by the USDA and funds go toward Child Nutrition staff wages. Please note that you are not taking food away from someone who needs it more – we have plenty to go around!

    No deposits are required in TITAN this school year. Inadvertent deposits will be refunded.
