Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
All lunches must average 35 % or less in fat and no more that 10 % in saturated fat. Menus are analyzed by the state child nutrition office twice a year. All menu items are prepared using standardized recipes that adhere to all local, state and federal guidelines. Recipes are being modified as new ingredients are added or changed by suppliers. A variety of fresh fruit is available for students everyday as well as tossed salad and a variety of vegetables. A student meal consists of an entrée choice, two fruits and or vegetables, bread and 1% or skim milk. Modifications to a student meal can be made if the child has allergies that prevent them from eating the lunch that is provided.
Breakfast and lunch is free for all Clinton City School students. All others will be charged a-la-carte prices for each item purchased. Parents may pre-pay for their child(ren) meals at any school or go to https://www.k12paymentcenter.com/ to set up an account.
