The Warren County School Nutrition Department is committed to provide meals that are nutritious, appetizing, and beneficial by implementing standards, procedures and requirements that are set forth by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Tennessee State Department of Education (TNDOE). The Warren County School Nutrition Program is dedicated to this commitment by offering high quality meals with a variety of Meat/Meat Alternates, 100% Fresh Fruit and Vegetable varieties, Whole Grains, and Low-Fat Milk options. We believe that school meals are critical to student health and provide nutrition needed to young minds throughout the day that aids significantly in learning. School meals have been shown to reduce food insecurity, obesity rates, and poor health. (FRAC) Our continuous goal is to provide meals that will gain and retain student participation, while ensuring that the program is self-supported financially.
The National School Breakfast Program (NSBP) and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) are federally assisted meal programs, that focus on providing students low cost or no-cost meals that are nutritionally balanced each day. The National School Lunch Program was founded under the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act and signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1946. The National School Breakfast Program began as a pilot project in 1966 and was made a permanent program by Congress in 1975. Both programs require SFAs who are a part of the program to offer and serve Breakfast, Lunch, and Afterschool snacks in compliance with Federal meal pattern requirements. Specific food items served within these meal patterns are up to the School Food Authority, however they must meet all State, Federal, and Health Authority standards, practices, and health regulations.
The Warren County School Nutrition Program is an accredited SFA that takes part in the National School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program. It is our duty and requirement to abide by and implement all State, Federal, and Health Authority standards, practices, and health regulations.
