School Meals

Nutrition standards for school meals require that students must select at least ½ cup fruit and/or vegetable at breakfast and lunch. Meals offered include whole-grain rich items, fruits, vegetables, trans-fat free food items, healthy entrées and low fat and fat free milk varieties. Meals are planned to include limits for calories, saturated fat, and sodium. Meals meet the Recommended Daily Allowance as established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

A great meal offers the delicious nutrition needed for our students to look and feel great – do well in school and sports – be fit, healthy, and ready to learn.

This year, all student meals are offered at no cost through USDA’s Community Eligibility Program. Adult Breakfast is $2.25 and Adult Lunch is $3.50.

THANKS FOR LETTING US HELP TO KEEP YOU HEALTHY!                         

Mission Statement

We provide school meals that promote student wellness and encourage good nutritional habits. Our objectives are:  To offer nutritious foods, to serve meals on time so that class schedules are met, to provide a friendly atmosphere, to greet students with a smile, to give students an opportunity to make choices, to prepare, store, and serve food in ways that meet sanitation guidelines, to provide nutrition education information for students, parents, and teachers, and to promote school meals, encouraging student participation.  

About Us

We operate six kitchens within Haywood County, offering breakfast and lunch on a daily basis. Each kitchen is staffed with a Cafeteria Manager, Assistant and cafeteria workers. All food is prepared on site at each school. We have a staff of 50 employees serving on average, over 3,200 meals a day, approximately 576,000 meals a year.

Food safety is our number one priority!

Our staff maintains the highest cleanliness standards in their kitchens. To ensure this, the Haywood County Health Department conducts two inspections each year at each school. Along with the health inspections, we conduct numerous health and safety inspections of our own throughout the year.
