Produce Bars

In alignment with our mission to provide delicious, fresh, high quality food for students in OUSD, the Nutrition Services department is proud to announce our Produce Bar initiative. 

All OUSD students in our district's elementary, middle, and high schools will have access to a diverse offering of fresh fruit and vegetables on their school produce bars. Produce bars add more variety into students' diets, and can help increase their daily consumption of fruits and vegetables in schools.

Student using produce bar

We have a huge increase in students willing to try items from the produce bar! This push has supported students in feeling full. Often students don't want to choose one item and would like both fruits or both veggies!
