School Meal Program

Child Nutrition Services operates under the regulations and guidance of the National School Lunch Program. It is a federal and state assisted program that provides nutritious and well-balanced meals at low or no cost to children each school day. The school meal program is a self-sufficient operation with revenue sources coming from USDA reimbursement, student and adult meals, and a la carte sales.

The USDA has extended free meals to all students until June 30, 2022. Please see our Grab 'n Go meal service for more info.
