Our Mission
To provide free breakfast and lunches for ALL students through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs and Summer Feeding Program. Our program is more than just preparing foods and sending the students on their way. We try not only to satisfy their appetites, but to educate them in healthy eating habits, nutrition, and provide exposure to the creative world of food.
 
In the operation of the child nutrition programs, no child will be discriminated against because of race, sex, color, national origin, age or disability. If you believe you have been discriminated against, write immediately to the Secretary of the Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250
