We are dedicated to students' health, well-being and their ability to learn. We support learning by offering nutritious foods, to serve meals on time so that class schedules are met, to provide a friendly atmosphere and to greet students with a smile. We encourage each student to participate.
The Tipton County School Nutrition program is responsible for providing nutritious meals for students in all of our schools. School Nutrition participates in the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program. The United States Department of Agriculture administers these programs and has established guidelines that must be followed by the district.
Beginning in August 2022, the School Nutrition Department will change back to the way it operated before March 2020.
The federal government allowed schools to offer free meals to all students during the pandemic, but Congress did not extend this benefit for the upcoming school year (2022 – 2023). Breakfast and lunch will still be available to all students; however, they will not be free to all students. That means that families are highly encouraged to complete the Free and Reduced-price Family Application to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. The students who do not qualify for free or reduced-priced meals must pay full price for breakfast and lunch.
