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.

Burke County Public Schools participate county-wide in a program that is intended to encourage students to enjoy wholesome, nutritious meals at school while eliminating paperwork for parents.  The program, called the Community Eligibility Provision, or CEP, is funded by the US Department of Agriculture as a means of ensuring students get the food they need to do their best at school. Studies show that when students are hungry, they are often distracted in the classroom, they are absent from school more often and score lower on standardized tests.  This new Federally-funded program will allow all students attending Burke County Public Schools to receive breakfast and lunch at school at no cost to the student or their household, and no school meals application is required. 

Summer Feeding Starts June 3, 2019

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.
