The Urbandale CSD Nutrition Services Team offers catering services. We request at least one week notice, two weeks preferred, for all catering orders.  We look forward to hearing from you!


Classroom Parties and Fundraising Events

School sponsored events must follow the Healthy Kids Act guidelines as related to food consumption. If families would like to provide snacks for their child’s class party (i.e. classroom parties, school-wide celebrations) then the snacks must meet the Smart Snacks in Schools standards as the classroom party is a school-sanctioned activity.

In addition, all food and beverages sold to students for fundraising activities that take place from midnight to 4:00 p.m. must meet the Smart Snacks in Schools standards. The standards do not apply for fundraising events that take place during non-school hours, on weekends, and at off-campus fundraising events.

Families, schools, and PTOs have two options for providing Smart Snacks for classroom parties and fundraising events:

Option 1: Purchase Smart Snacks at the Grocery Store

Option 2: Order Smart Snacks through Urbandale CSD Nutrition Services Catering (we deliver!) Please place order at least one week in advance.

For more information regarding Smart Snacks and the Healthy Kids Act, please visit the Smart Snacks page.
