School Nutrition


The Director of School Nutrition assumes leadership in improving the nutrition program within the school system following standards developed by federal, state, and local agencies. Her office is responsible for training and supervising office staff and lunchroom personnel as they plan, prepare, and serve breakfast and lunch each school day. In addition, the director plans the menus and supervises the purchasing of all foods and food service equipment that will ensure an efficiently operating cafeteria program.

The director's office prepares and submits an annual budget that includes food and equipment purchases that meet or exceed local, state, and federal guidelines. This department oversees the Free & Reduced Meal Program, Summer Feeding, After-School snacks, and the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program. The school nutrition program is a federally operated program and is self-sufficient with meal prices covering the cost to operate the program.
