School Nutrition

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! 

Effective immediately, Northumberland County Public Schools will be serving meals at no charge to children 18 and under. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved waivers for local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to children in the community free of charge through June 2021. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.

Northumberland County Public Schools’ School Nutrition Team is here to support your school aged students during this unprecedented time. This year will be quite different than any year we have seen, but it is our mission to make sure that our students are provided with healthy breakfast and lunch meals to help in their learning.

Our Mission

Northumberland  Public School food service is committed to serving healthy meals to children, with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and  fat-free and low fat milk; moderate in sodium, low in saturated fats, and zero grams trans fat per serving; and to meet the nutritional needs of school children within their calorie requirements. All schools within the district participate in the USDA child nutrition programs, the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program(SBP). The school meal programs aim to improve the diet and health of school children, help mitigate childhood obesity, model healthy eating to support the development of lifelong healthy eating patterns and support healthy choices.
