Better Learning Through Good Nutrition!!
We hope the information that you find here will be helpful and informative to you and your family. If you have any questions or concerns about the Child Nutrition Program, you may contact Sue Sloan, Duplin County Schools Child Nutrition Director, by calling (910) 296-8786.
The Child Nutrition Program strives to provide foods that meet or exceed federal guidelines for nutrition, while maintaining a moderate price to enable all of our students to take full advantage of the educational process. Our Child Nutrition Employees make the program work on a daily basis and they are dedicated to the health and well being of all students.
Students may choose from a well-balanced selection of food items. Nutritious supplemental items such as extra milk, fruits and vegetables and menu items or snacks are also available for purchase.
If your household wishes to apply for free or reduced-price school meals, an application must be completed each school year. The current years' application is available to every student on the first day of school, and they must be completed and returned to the cafeteria manager at your child's school. Families whose income falls within federal eligibility guidelines may be approved for free or reduced-price school meals. New applications must be completed for each household at the beginning of every new school year, unless you receive a letter from the Child Nutrition Department stating that you are not required to do so because of conditions which pre-qualify your children. If you receive such a letter from the Child Nutrition office, please be sure to read it carefully and follow all directions included with the letter. Contact the Child Nutrition Office (910-296-8781) if you have any questions in reference to any letters or any issue you may have concerning the application process.
Our mission is to promote nutritious meals through exceptional service in a clean and safe environment to ensure that each student maximizes their potential!
