Five Star Meals

 

Breakfast and Lunch served everyday!

At Nevada Union our mission is to create a food program that students and staff will look forward to, enjoy, and find nutritious and satisfying. We will achieve this goal by working towards a program where our food is prepared fresh, from-scratch, in our school kitchens, using locally and regionally sourced ingredients whenever possible. 

Welcome to Nevada Union’s  food program! 

 The Nevada Joint Union High School District would like to introduce you to the exciting changes being made as we work toward our goal of preparing fresh, cooked-from-scratch meals created entirely on-site in our school kitchens.Students can create their own salads with local produce in our build-your-own-salad bar at Nevada Union. We are working closely with local farms to secure produce that is grown locally and regionally; this means students can expect colorful summer vegetables when they begin the school year, crisp apples as they enter autumn and savory root vegetables as they turn the corner into winter.  Freshly made prepared salads will also be available,Caesar,taco,oriental,southwest just to name a few.We offer a build-your-own-sandwich bar, where students can add fresh produce and condiments to their sandwich that is made with freshly baked bread from Truckee Sourdough Company. Made from scratch pizza dough will be used to create cheese and pepperoni pies which will be offered daily, and a different specialty pie each day of the week, including Hawaiian, BBQ chicken, and Veggie and Pesto Chicken. Freshly made hot sandwiches on Truckee Sourdough bread will also be offered, including pulled pork, southwest chicken, and pesto chicken.  A variety of delicious wraps and burritos will be available, including an oriental chicken wrap and a fajita burrito.  As you can see, delicious, nutritious, and appealing choices for students and staff will be in abundance with our new program.  

   We are working closely with local non-profits Sierra Harvest and Nevada County Grown to move toward a completely fresh, cooked-from-scratch food program.  Check back with us often to see our new farm partners and changes as our program progresses over the next few years.
