Wellness Policy

Torrance Unified School District is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. The Wellness Policy Committee met in 2015 to revise and update the existing Wellness Policy. The committee included a variety of District staff and other interested community members. To become a member of the Wellness Committee, please contact the Chair of the committee at wellnesspolicy@tusd.org.

Sharing the Message of Wellness

The overarching goal of the TUSD Wellness Policy is to promote health and wellness, and to convey positive, consistent messages to all District students in accordance with current law. We want to support our students and enable them to achieve more by learning healthy behaviors that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. 

Key Areas of Wellness

The Wellness Policy focuses on three keys areas:

  • School health, safety and environment
  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity and physical education
  • Family Involvement

How do I know if the foods I want to serve to the students for a school event are compliant?

You can use the Project Lean "Food Calculator" to see if the foods/beverages are compliant. Simply type in the information requested and it will tell you based on the grade level if the items are compliant. You can contact Nutrition Services if you have any questions! Go to this link for the Project Lean Food Calculator!
