Franklin County School Nutrition Program

Franklin County Schools currently has 11 School Nutrition Managers and over 70 school nutrition professionals, serving breakfast and lunch on a daily basis to each of our 11 schools in Franklin County. All meals provided by Franklin County Schools must meet the Recommended Daily Allowance established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Franklin County School Nutrition Program offers a selection of daily choices at all grade levels. Students are more likely to eat when they make their own choices.

Franklin County School Nutrition is an active participant in the National School Lunch and National School Breakfast Programs. These are federally assisted child feeding programs sponsored by USDA that provide free or reduced meals to our students whose families meet the criteria. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by President Harry Truman in 1946.

The School Nutrition Program operates fiscally independent with the District, paying for operating expenses and administrative costs. We are supported by revenue generated from sales made within our cafeterias as well as receiving federal funds based on our meal participation. This department does not receive any local tax dollars. 

As a partner in education, the Franklin County School Nutrition Program contributes to a successful academic experience and encourages a lifetime of healthy eating by providing each student with the affordable opportunity to enjoy meals that are nutritious, appealing, and served by caring professionals in a pleasant environment.

We look forward to serving your children and invite you to visit your child’s cafeteria during the school year.


Eat Breakfast at School!


Recent studies show a link between nutrition and learning. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can actively participate in class. 

Studies have also proven that breakfast helps improve test scores.  Children who eat a healthy breakfast have fewer behavior problems and fewer trips to the school nurse. 


Take time for school breakfast!

Reimbursable Breakfast at $0 to all students this year!



Be a Part of the After School Snack Program

Any students participating in sports, clubs, or any extra-curricular activities that meet after school are eligible for this program.  Snacks are provided at NO CHARGE to students.  Contact your school's cafeteria manager for more information. 




Mission Statement

We will encourage all students to excel in learning through well nourished bodies established by meeting or exceeding dietary guidelines and providing a variety of healthy food choices.
