Meet Food Services Director Amy Hedrick-Farr:

Hello, my name is Amy Hedrick-Farr, and I am the new Director of Food Service for Santa Cruz City Schools. I am very excited to join a team of outstanding and dedicated food service personnel. I have seventeen years of experience in school nutrition and a lifetime of passion for food. I was born and raised in Santa Cruz and am thrilled to return to my home community.

This district has been at the forefront of nutrition, and I plan to continue the cooperative relationships built and add new ones along the way. I am committed to providing wholesome, locally grown, satisfying and nutritious meals that help support the good health, learning and overall well-being of each student who chooses to purchase meals at school.   

 I look forward to becoming a part of Santa Cruz City Schools and making a difference in students’ lives!   


A Note From Food Services Director Amy Hedrick-Farr:

 Dear SCCS Elementary School Students, Parents and Staff;

Surf City Cafe strives to provide healthy, tasty and appealing meals using local ingredients whenever possible and to give fun and friendly, informed customer service and nutritional education to all our students in a positive, equitable and safe environment.

 We also provide nutritional support for each school to assure maximum student achievement, adhering to the nutritional standards set by the USDA in the National School Lunch Program. Surf City Cafe staff assigned to individual schools ensure that breakfast, brunch, lunch, supper and after school snack programs throughout the district meet the needs of students and staff.
