Mission Statement

Caring...Sharing...Learning...through nutrition 

The Gloucester County Public School’s food service meal program serves appealing, reasonably priced meals to your child/children. (Eligible students may receive meals free or at a reduced price: breakfast 30 cents and lunch 40 cents.)

Meals are planned by the Director of Food Service and the Administrative Associate, with input from students and teachers. All meals meet the criteria and regulations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Virginia Department of Education. Menus are planned with the goal of providing students with one third of their Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for key nutrients and calories. Extra effort is made to provide low fat alternatives and to keep the average of calories from fat below 30 percent.

Give your children all the benefits of good nutrition
so they can achieve their highest possible potential.
