TROY CITY SCHOOLS CHILD NUTRITION
Troy City Schools Child Nutrition Program is excited to provide meals at no charge to our students during the 2021-2022 school year. We will be operating under the Seamless Summer Option guidelines, which meet the same nutritional requirements as the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. All schools will be open sites and will offer a complete breakfast and lunch meal each school day. All meals served will comply with standards set forth by the United States Department of Agriculture.
The statement: “You Cannot Teach a Hungry Child,” is our incentive to meet the nutritional needs of our students. Students are encouraged to try new foods and use the cafeteria as a learning laboratory for making nutritious choices.
Balance, moderation, and variety are the keys to healthier eating. If we can instill this into our children today, we will have healthier adults in the future.
We make an ongoing commitment to aid student success by not only providing well-balanced breakfast and lunch meals but by also keeping both students and parents informed about nutrition standards and meal patterns. We want to see our students reach their highest potential and we believe that it starts with nutritious meals!
