Welcome to Jones County School Nutrition Program!

FREE MEALS are now available September 9 through December 31, 2020 or until federal funding is no longer available, whichever comes first!.  Parents will be notified again when this funding is scheduled to end.

We are pleased to announce the start of free breakfast and lunch meals for Jones County students.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.
