Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

The Scotland County Schools Child Nutrition Department serves nutritious meals in a clean, safe and friendly environment to students and adults each day.

All 11 schools offer the breakfast and lunch program. At lunch offer verses serve provisions allows students to accept three items and decline two. Two entrees are offered in each school for lunch daily. The Child Nutrition Department is dedicated to offering healthy items and encouraging healthy eating habits. Our meals meet the guidelines for nutritional values set by the state. The USDA program called Team Nutrition, teaches students to eat more healthy meals. Team Nutrition encourages students to choose low fat items such as whole grains, vegetables and fruit.The school lunch and breakfast programs each provide one third of the dietary daily allowance for each child.
