Welcome! Jones County School Nutrition Program
NATIONAL SCHOOL BREAKFAST WEEK
March 8-12, 2021
Score BIG with School Breakfast!
This year's National School Breakfast Week will mark a full year of nearly non-stop meal service for Jones County Schools and others across the country.
Breakfast is still the most important meal of the day and parents, we need you to help encourage your child to join us for breakfast and a healthy start to the morning! And it is FREE!
Jones County School Nutrition is still operating meal service under the Seamless Summer Option program. These meals are for virtual students, home school students, and children under school age (0-4).
We will be offering a breakfast/lunch meal box to Jones County children, ages 18 and under, and up to age 21 for individuals still enrolled in school with state specified mental or physical disabilities.
Meal Bundles contain 5 Breakfasts and 5 Lunch for Monday - Friday meal service. PLEASE make sure that you have sufficient refrigeration space available to store them.
Pre-orders are required each week by completing the Form link below, no later than Monday morning at 9:00am. Parent Meal Order Form
Pick-up dates: Tuesdays and Thursdays from each school
Pick up time: 10:00 - 11:30 AM
For more information or meal accommodation needs, call (478) 986-1390.
UPDATE: We are pleased to announce FREE breakfast and lunch meals for all students for the entire 2020-2021 school year for Jones County students. Meal applications, however, are still needed and being processed at
Although we use the results of the free and reduced percentages for student meals reports, they are also used for many other programs such as E-rates (technology equipment and discounts for the district) and Title 1 federal funding. We sincerely thank you for your cooperation and support in these efforts.
The free meals are made available through USDA and the nationwide waivers it has extended for School Food Authorities( SFA) to operate under the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). This means that meals can be served free of charge to students and other children in the community ages 0-18, during the COVID-19 outbreak.
For students enrolled in the Jones County Virtual Academy, parents/guardians may pick up breakfast and lunch meals at each school site between 10:00-11:30 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Parents must provide the names and base school for each student that meals are picked up for. Please call (478) 986-1390 on Mondays to place orders for meal pickup on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Meals, Smart Snacks and beverages sold or served at school by the Nutrition teams 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 needs of students. Our nutrition team at each school is ready to assist in any way possible.
If your child is in need of Special Meal Accommodations, please complete the attached form below and return to your child's school nurse. We will coordinate a plan with the nurse for the child.
Thank you for your support of the Jones County School Nutrition Program.
