Go to the Twin Rivers Nutrition Page to get the most up-to-date information on the school breakfast/lunch process this year. There are changes, and all students will now be receiving free breakfast and lunch, without having to fill out the free and reduced lunch application (like in years past).
School cafeterias across the nation are mandated to receive two health inspections per year. The purpose of these inspections is to ensure that our facilities and workers are complying with safety and sanitation requirements - from checking food temperatures to wearing gloves.
The Sacramento County Environmental Health Department does an excellent job at making sure this mandate is met. Every permitted cafeteria in the Twin Rivers School District has received their required number of inspections with a 100% "PASS" rate.
But we don't stop there, we self-inspect our sites on a regular basis. Every kitchen has at least one staff member that has taken a food handlers course and earned a food safety certificate. Our Field Supervisors and Management staff are constantly visiting our cafeterias to ensure our staff is following safe food handling practices. We have developed and initiated a "Site Standard" inspection to ensure that every area of food safety in our cafeterias are checked.
