The primary objective of the Child Nutrition Program is to make available to every student a nutritious, well-prepared and attractive breakfast & lunch every day.  A complete breakfast is offered every morning in all elementary, middle schools, and high school.  Universal Free breakfast is available at no cost to K-8 students.

Lunch consists of: 2 oz. meat or meat alternate, 2 (1/2 c.) servings vegetable &/or fruit, 1 serving of bread or bread alternate, and 1/2 pint milk.  Under the "Offer vs. Serve provision of the National School Lunch Program, the student may decline two of the items offered.  However the price of the meal remains the same.  If any student takes only one or two of the meal components, he must pay for these at posted prices (this includes those students who qualify for free or reduced price meals.)  According to the new federal meal requirements, Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 a student Must select 1 Fruit or Vegetable + 2 more components for a reimbursable meal.
