WELCOME TO THE CHILD NUTRITION PROGRAM
The Child Nutrition Program (CNP) provides school foodservice for Lawrence County students and staff under the guidelines and regulations of the United States Department of Agriculture. All schools have a commercial kitchen on site that provides nutritious meals every school day for our students, staff, and visitors.
Each school cafeteria has a manager and assistant manager. Both are ServSafe certified.
All student meals are subsidized by the Federal Government to insure that all students receive adequate nutrition.
All students in our school system eat FREE this school year because we qualify to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision/USDA Program.
They will still need money for any extras they wish to purchase.
Prices for breakfast, lunch, and a la carte items are available on this website.Students may qualify for free or reduced meals at any time during the school year. The household qualifies based on the income and size of the household. Forms may be picked up at any cafeteria during school hours or down loaded from this website.
The Child Nutrition Program is funded by the Federal Government and through daily food sales.
