Food Services


The Food Service Staff at Lodi Unified School District is dedicated to providing students and staff members with attractive, well balanced, and nutritious meals.

We value all students and staff as our customers. 

We strive to provide the best possible quality foods, services and nutritional knowledge to our students and employees. We want to be the friendliest and most efficient school food service establishment in San Joaquin County.

Donna Harvell
Cafeteria Manager


From photo booths to roving sample carts, Donna searches every day for new ways to serve more students. As a high school cafeteria manager, she ensures the 1700 meals served daily at her four main serving lines, salad bar, two carts, and two snack bars set the standard of how school food should taste and look. She has the unique ability to inspire others, encouraging her staff to connect with the students and take pride in their work. She knows her students may not have access to healthy food and if she can get a student to try her meals, she’ll have a return customer, meaning they are receiving the food they need to develop, learn, and be their best selves.

Donna Harvell: "If we are not trying to serve every baby in this school, every day, then what are we here for?
