Nutrition Services

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Food Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students’ health, well being, and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Food and beverages sold or served at school meet the nutrition recommendations of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District Student Nutrition Advisory Council (SNAC) is to provide quality nutrition education guidance designed to enhance our students’ wellness and lifelong ability to make choices that will have a positive impact on academic achievement and healthy lifestyles.

Mission Statement

Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student’s meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and give students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen, or used for other things other than lunch.

To use the eFunds for Schools online payment system you will need your child’s permanent student ID (remember to include leading zeros). If you do not  know this number call the Food Service Office at (714) 985-8610 or email

There is small transaction fee for using eFunds for Schools which is collected by the payment processor. The fee for ACH (electronic transfer from a checking account) is $1.00 per transaction. The transaction fee for a credit card purchase is $2.45 for the first $100.00. Each additional $100.00 will be $2.45 per transaction. For example, a purchase of $125.00 will result in a convenience fee of $4.90. A transaction can include multiple purchases for one or more siblings across multiple schools in a single transaction.

Online payments are a simple, safe, and secure way to make payments to your students account 24 hours a day at your convenience.

If you have any questions please email

You can always bring money personally or send it with your student. Please put it in an envelope clearly marked with the student’s first and last name, their ID number, their teacher’s name, and the amount enclosed. Turn in prepaid deposits to the cafeteria cashiers or school office.
