Welcome to School Nutrition Services!
The Randolph County School System is committed to providing nutritious meals to students as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meal Pricing: For the 2021-2022 school year, breakfast and lunch meals will be provided to all students at no charge.
Meal Benefits: Breakfast and lunch meals are currently free for all students. However, families are still encouraged to apply for Free/Reduced priced meals to prevent a disruption in meal benefits.

In addition to meeting nutrition standards, our schools provide fresh fruits and vegetables from North Carolina farmers, as well as offer higher quality food items that are made from scratch in our cafeterias daily.

RCSS School Breakfast Program
The School Nutrition Department knows how important breakfast is in helping students succeed in the classroom and are working hard to feed as many students as possible.
Statistics show that children who eat breakfast:
- Attend an average of 1.5 more days of school per year
- Average 17.5% higher math standardized test scores
More attendance + higher math scores = 20% more likely to graduate
