It is the goal of the Coffee County Child Nutrition Program to serve all students a variety of nutritious meals that are also delicious. Breakfast, lunch and after school snacks are provided each school day and are in accordance to the USDA and State of Alabama Wellness Guidelines.
Due to COVID-19, meal service has changed at each school, but great meals continue to be offered to students. These meals remain in accordance with the USDA guidelines. Breakfast and lunch meals are also now free to all students due to the USDA extended flexibilities to allow free meals to be available to all children throughout the 2021-2022 school year. Additional a la carte items can be purchased by students at meal times.
Despite the offer of free meals to all students, meal applications still need to be completed. Meal applications are available at each school. Applications should be completed and returned to the school cafeteria. Only one form should be used per household with all children listed on one form. Applications are confidential and are processed at the Central Office.
If your child has any food allergies or other special dietary needs, please contact the CNP department at the Central Office. Diet prescription forms are available and should be completed by your child’s physician. The form should be returned to the school nurse as soon as possible. The form must also be on file in the cafeteria in order to accommodate your child’s need. The school nurse and cafeteria staff will work together to create a meal that meets the student’s special diet. A new diet prescription should be completed each school year and any time there is a change to your child’s diet during the current school year.
