The Madison County Child Nutrition Department operates 26 cafeteria sites and serves approximately 12,300 lunches and 3,615 breakfasts each school day. The meals provided are in compliance with USDA Regulations and meet the school meal initiative requirement.

The Students meal service is provided by 200 Child Nutrition professionals whose goal is to provide meals that are nutritionally sound, appealing and satisfying.

The primary objective of the child nutrition program is to make available to every student a nutritious, well-prepared and attractive lunch every day.  A complete breakfast is offered every morning from 7:15 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. at all schools.  Times will vary according to each school's operational hours.

All meals meet the standards as provided in federal, state and local laws and/or rules and regulations.  Menu patterns are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and amounts of sugar, sodium and fat are controlled.
