Welcome to the Atwater Elementary School District Food Services website.  We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.  Our team is dedicated to our student's health, well-being and their ability to learn.

 We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.  Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements, which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.
