• DVUSD Food & Nutrition is Nourishing DVUSD Minds

    The mission of Deer Valley Food and Nutrition department is to provide safe and nutritious meals that are both convenient and affordable. The pandemic provided a unique opportunity to serve with our community in new ways and provide meals

    utilizing our creativity, ingenuity, and love for what we do. We added meal delivery and curbside pick-up at 44 locations for children in our community, regardlessif they were DVUSD students. Our meals meet strict nutritional guidelines, including a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grain-rich products, low-fat and fat-free milk and dairy products. 

    Providing foods that meet these standards as well as our student’s preferences is a rewarding challenge. One of our nutrient packed, quick-fix recipes that can be made at home is our Orange Delight Blenderless Smoothie.
