The Governing Board believes that foods and beverages sold to students on school campuses during the school day should promote student health and reduce childhood obesity. Any food sales conducted outside the district's food service program shall meet nutritional standards specified in law, Board policy, and administrative regulations and shall not reduce student participation in the district's food service program.

(cf. 5030 - Student Wellness)

The Board authorizes the Superintendent/Principal or designee to approve the sale of foods and beverages outside the district's food service program, including sales by student or adult organizations, sales through vending machines, and/or sales at secondary school student stores for fundraising purposes.

(cf. 3550 - Food Service/Child Nutrition Program)

(cf. 3551 - Food Service Operations/Cafeteria Fund)

(cf. 3553 - Free and Reduced Price Meals)

Food sales are prohibited during school hours, and within one hour before and after school hours, unless the organization is legally organized as a nonpartisan, charitable organization, the purpose of the solicitation is nonpartisan and charitable, and the solicitation has been approved in accordance with Board policy. (Education Code 51520)
