School Nutrition Staff

Well-nourished children learn better, tend to have higher test scores and less behavioral problems. In addition, recent studies show that well-fed children are absent less than those who miss meals.

This guide outlines the steps school districts can take to determine your school or district's need for virtual student meal service, evaluating your capacity to provide meals, and choose a service model(s) that best fits your community.
