School Nutrition

The School Nutrition department would like to Welcome all our students for the 2023-2024 school year!

 Our mission is to make sure that our students are provided with healthy breakfast and lunch meals to help in their learning.
As a reminder,  there is no charge for a student breakfast or lunch. There may be changes to our menus due to the shortages and out of stocks from our Vendor. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience this may cause. Looking forward to a great year ahead.



School divisions participating division wide in the Community Eligibility Provision for school Year 23-24

Date: 8/07/2023 

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are pleased to let you know that all schools in Northumberland County Public Schools will be implementing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for school year 2023-2024. CEP allows eligible schools participating in the USDA National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program to provide meals at no cost to all students without meal applications.

What does this mean for you and your student(s) attending the school(s) identified above?

Great news! All students attending any school in Northumberland County are eligible to receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each school day. You do not have to take any action. The student(s) in your household who attend a participating CEP school will receive a complete breakfast and lunch meal at no cost without you paying a fee or submitting a meal application.

If you have questions or need help, please contact us at 804-580-5192.
