2021/2022 SCHOOL YEAR
The Warren County School District will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision again this school year. This allows all students in Warren County Schools to eat breakfast, lunch, and supper at no charge enabling them to be better prepared for learning in the classroom.
A nutritious breakfast is offered daily to all students at no charge. We encourage students to eat breakfast before starting their day!
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.
