SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM IN MONROE COUNTY

Many families depend on school meals to provide nourishment to their children during the school year. When school is out, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) fills the “nutrition gap” at feeding sites operated by approved sponsors.

The Monroe County Board of Education is participating in the Summer Food Service Program and will provide breakfast and lunch to all children 18 years and younger  without charge.  Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. 

Monroe County High School will be the central summer feeding site for Monroe County, as well as J.F. Shields School in Beatrice and Monroe Intermediate School in Lower Peachtree.   Please join us at one of these sites this summer to make sure no child goes without a meal once school is out.  Go to www.monroe.k12.al.us to see menus for each location.

Eat Healthy-Be Healthy

Nutritional Meals are good for the Body and Mind!

The Monroe County School Child Nutrition Program prepares a healthy meal each day which consist of the five components of a nutritional meal (Grains, Vegetables, Meat, Fruit, and Milk).

I will be working with the Managers from each school to make positive changes to our lunchrooms over the next few months.  

Please assist us by encouraging the students to:
R
eturn completed Meal Application to the School immediately upon receipt; 
Observe the Monroe County Board of Education “NO Charge” Policy for Students and Adults; 
Be prepared to make payments for Breakfast and Lunch in Homeroom/First Period;
Let the homeroom teachers know if they are eating, so the report can be sent to the Office;
Encourage the students to eat School Breakfast and School Lunch each day.

Studies show that students with healthy eating and exercise habits have:
* Higher Test Scores
* Better Attendance
* Improved Concentration
* Fewer Discipline Problems
* Greater Overall Achievement

Menus will be posted in the classroom, school cafeteria, the school website. Please take time to view the menus. We would love for you to provide comments and concerns that will help us make positive changes.
