SCHOOL NUTRITION

2018/2019 School Year:

We are pleased to announce that we are able to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision which allows all students in Warren County Schools to eat breakfast, lunch, and snupper at no charge enabling them to be better prepared for learning in the classroom.

Warren County Schools offer a nutritious breakfast daily at no charge to
students. We encourage all students to eat breakfast before starting their day.
 

Take the guesswork out of nutrition guidelines with the new Alliance Product Calculator for Smart Snacks! Simply enter the product information, answer a few questions, and determine whether your beverage, snack, side or entrée item meets the new USDA Smart Snacks in School Guidelines.

 

FYI:

The Warren County School Nutrition Department operates within the requirements of the United States Department of Agriculture and Tennessee State Department of Education in offering meals that are nutritionally sound. The Warren County School Nutrition Program is an integral part of the education system because "you cannot teach a hungry child".  Our goal is to provide students with nutritious meals that adhere to Federal regulations and retain student acceptance while ensuring the program is financially self-supporting. Warren County School Nutrition Program offers a selection of daily choices at all grade levels. Students are more likely to eat when they make their own choices. Providing quality meals and service is our priority.

 The National School Lunch Program (NSLP), established in 1946, is a federally assisted meal program that provides balanced, low-cost or free lunches to thousands of children in Tennessee each day. These lunches make a vital contribution to children’s mental and physical development. In recent years, recipes have been modified to reduce the fat, salt, and sugar content of school lunches. Students have a variety of menu choices, including entrees, vegetables, fruits, and alternatives such as chef salads.
