School Nutrition Program

The School Nutrition Program will provide meals through participation in USDA’s National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. The programs will operate on a nonprofit basis and be fiscally self-sustaining. It is the District’s responsibility to provide adequate facilities for the preparation and serving of meals, to comply with federal and state laws governing the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.

School lunch and school breakfast should be an integral part of the total educational program, designed to provide well-balanced healthy meals that provide students with the nutrition necessary for healthy growth, intellectual development and promotes good nutritional habits.
