JONES COUNTY SCHOOL NUTRITION PROGRAM

MISSION STATEMENT

To provide nutritious meals and outstanding service that enhances the educational process of all students in Jones County Schools.

We welcome the opportunity to provide your student with nutritious, appetizing meals at school! It has been proven that a hungry child cannot learn, and our meals provide one-forth to one-third of the daily nutritional requirements for children. Our meals must comply with the USDA’s guidelines for fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, calcium, iron, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, protein, carbohydrates and calories.  Our enthusiastic employees look forward to providing a key component to your student’s success: healthy meals.

The School Nutrition Program is dedicated to serving quality nutritious meals to its students and staff. All meals are in line with the new Healthy School Meals produced by our government this year. Your student will enjoy more fresh fruit, vegetables and wholesome food options.

Menu Options

Our school district participates in Offer vs Serve. This means that students are not required to pick up all meal components (all are recommended). However, one of the student selections must be 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetables.  Students can choose between two entrees, vegetables, fruit and a variety of milk choices each day.  The sack lunch menu choices vary between the student favorite of peanut butter/jelly sandwich or a turkey/ham/cheese sandwich. Middle school students may select from a hot-cooked meal, fruit/yogurt plate, peanut butter/jelly sandwich or a turkey/ham/cheese sandwich. In high school, students have multiple entrees stations: Greyhound Homestyle Meals (home cooked foods), Greyhound Grille' (sandwiches pizza, peanut butter/jelly sandwich bag lunch) and the Greyhound Salad Bar (fruit/yogurt plate, or a salad plate).

Breakfast is offered daily at all schools. Popular items such as biscuits, bagels, donuts, cereal, eggs and grits, and pancakes are some of the featured items. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it re-fuels the brain for learning. Research shows that students do better academically with a good, nutritious breakfast. School breakfast fills this need for busy parents by providing healthy foods students will eat.
