Healthy schools and healthy students

Healthy schools produce healthy students. Healthy schools and school districts are those that support good nutrition and physical activity as part of a total learning environment.

The Issaquah School District adopted a nutrition policy and has taken steps to increase the nutritional value of school lunches. The District will establish guidelines for foods and beverages sold by the food service program and those sold in vending machines, snack bars, school stores, and school-sponsored fundraising events. Students will have opportunities for physical activity and appropriate exercise and accurate information on nutrition and wellness will be available.

Free and Reduced Lunch Program

Children from households that meet federal income guidelines are eligible for free or reduced price lunches. Reduced price meals cost each eligible student 40¢. To apply for free or reduced price meals the applicant must complete a District Application Form requesting free or reduced price lunches. If you prefer, here is the District Application form in Spanish.

Return completed applications to your child's school office or to the Food Service Office. You may also mail your application to Issaquah School District Food Services, May Valley Service Center, 16430 SE May Valley Road, Renton, WA 98059.
