Petal Child Nutrition wants to hear from you...

 

The goal of the Petal School District’s Child Nutrition Program is to provide students, teachers and staff nutritious meals at a reasonable price and to provide unparalleled service to the students and patrons.

 

The National School Lunch Program is the original Child Nutrition Program. In operation since 1946, this program makes it possible for children to be served wholesome, low cost lunches at school each day. The meals are designed to meet one-third of the daily recommended dietary allowance and contribute to children’s mental and physical development.

 

The Child Nutrition program also participates in the National School Breakfast ProgramThis program was designed to meet the needs of children who arrive at school hungry. Nutrients missed at breakfast are seldom made up at other meals. A healthy breakfast alleviates mid-morning slumps and reduces student complaints of headaches, stomach aches and trips to the school nurse.

 
Any student whose family qualifies according to the criteria as set forth by the national program may be eligible for free or reduced meals. Free and Reduced Meal Applications must be completed each year. Follow the link below.  

All schools in the district are equipped with a “state of the art” Horizon Software Fastlane computer system that allows students, teachers, and staff members to prepay for meals by check or cash. Parents can log on to MyPaymentsPlus and make payments by check or credit card, view child's account history, and set up auto pay and e-mail alerts for low balance. To make payments by phone, call our toll free number              (866)615-6503 .
