Child Nutrition Program
The operation of the Child Nutrition Program is a cooperative effort involving the superintendent, central office staff, principals, cafeteria managers, assistant managers, employees, teachers, students, parents, and the community. Every employee is responsible to the Federal and State government and administration on the local level. The National School Food and Nutrition Program is to provide a nutritious breakfast and lunch to children. The program supplies free and reduced price meals to economically deprived children. Meals meet at least 2/3 the recommended daily dietary allowances, help develop sound food habits, and is a most extensive program in applied nutrition. It helps build alert, healthy citizens and teaches the social graces.
