The Central Kitchen’s mission is to serve every student, regardless of income, freshly prepared meals while at school. We are committed to offering local, seasonal produce and opening a student’s world to delicious and nutritious meals. 

The Central Kitchen started providing scratch-made meals during the 2022-2023 school year, and continues to work towards expanding meal options for students.

Community Partners

An operation like the Central Kitchen could never happen without the work done by our outstanding community partners. Their partnerships with us are just a fraction of their continued work in their communities, and together, our work is strengthening the farm to every fork vision in Sacramento.

Central Kitchen Project Funding

This project is being funded by Measure R, which voters passed in 2012, to allow the district to improve the health and safety of the children that we serve.
