KING WILLIAM SCHOOL NUTRITION
Our Mission: The King William County Public School Nutrition Program believes it takes a team to educate a child. Education does not end in the classroom, but extends to all areas in a child's life. School Nutrition is a vital part of a child's education. We are committed to serving safe, nutritious, and quality meals while encouraging students to develop life-long skills and knowledge to make healthy food choices.
Our Vision: The King William County School Nutrition Program will provide students and staff nutritionally sound meals that support the goal of the effective delivery of academic and/or extra-curricular education.
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 of students. All schools within our District participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). Our breakfast and lunch meals are required to meet specific nutritional guidelines according to different grade level groups (K-5, 6-8, and 9-12). For more detailed information about these federal programs and regulations, please visit the USDA Food and Nutrition Services Nutrition Programs homepage.
King William County's School Nutrition Department serves convenient, economical and healthy school meals, because nutrition is a vital part of a child's education. These nutritious, great-tasting meals support their achievements in school and promote healthy lifestyles. We strive to provide outstanding service and high quality "kid friendly" meals that meet the latest federal and state requirements. We look forward to serving your child/children!
The School Nutrition Program is a totally self-supporting program. The program receives no local tax funding or funding from the school system. The program is expected to make all of its own money. Funds are generated from the sales that are made each day in the school cafeterias and monthly federal reimbursements.
From the funds, the program pays the salaries and benefits for our School Nutrition Staff, purchases all foods, supplies, and equipment. We have many repairs on our existing equipment that always needs to be taken care of. As you can see, the school nutrition program is operating a business. This is information that most people do not realize and I feel it is important to share with our families and community. Despite all the regulations, which are many, we are doing our very best to serve our students nutritious and quality meals each day.
We hope that your child/children enjoy the experience of eating breakfast and lunch with us, and we appreciate their business. If your child does not eat school meals, we would invite them (and you) to give us a try. Our meals are "Cooked with Care, and Served With Pride". We would love to have them as our customer.
Please call our School Nutrition Office is you have any questions or would like to know more about our program. We are here to help. Our phone number is 804-769-3434 ext 550.
