School food service facilities are provided to serve students and employees when school is in session and during school-related activities.  They may also be used under the supervision of the Nutrition Director for food service to employee groups, parent-teacher meetings, civic organizations meeting for the purpose of better understanding the schools, and senior citizens in accordance with Board policy.

The school food program is operated on a nonprofit basis.   The revenues of the school food program will be used only for paying the regular operating costs of the school food program. Supplies of the school food program will only be used for the school food program.

The Board will set an annual, review, the prices for school lunches, breakfast, and special milk programs.  It is the responsibility of the Head of Nutrition to make a recommendation regarding the prices of school lunch, breakfast, and milk. It is the responsibility of the Nutrition Director to administer the program and to cooperate with the superintendent for the proper functioning of the school food program.
