Welcome to the School Nutrition Program

"Learning to eat right is just part of the education" process

The School Nutrition Program serves Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks and Supper in all five schools and satellites Breakfast and Lunch to Burke County Academy of Success, the Life Center and Early Head Start.


Mission Statement: As a partner in education, the Burke County School Nutrition Program's mission is to contribute to a successful academic experience and encourage a lifetime of healthy eating. The program provides each student with nutrition education and meals that are nutritious, appealing, and served by caring professionals in a pleasant environment.


Effective July 1, 2014, USDA, under The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, will be implementing the Smart Snacks in School standards. The new nutrition standards will build on the already healthy changes we have made in school meals and snacks by replacing junk foods with healthier snack options. Please refer to the link below, "Smart Snack Guidelines", to review the new standards. Also please check out the new Smart Snack Calculator to determine whether your snack meets the Nutrition Guidelines.
