Welcome to the
The primary objective of the Wilcox County Child Nutrition Program is to make available to all students nutritious, well-balanced meals at an affordable price. Both breakfast and lunch are available every day at each school and after-school snacks are available at participating schools. Menus are planned to comply with the Healthy Hunger Free Kid Act and the USDA Nutrient Standards for school meals.
During the 2015-16 school year, the Wilcox County School District will participate in Community Eligibiltiy Provision (CEP) on all campuses under the United States Department of Agriculture Community Eligibilty Amendment of the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. By choosing this option, meals will be served to all students enrolled in our schools at no charge regardless of their eligibility. Students are also eligible for one reimbursable snack at no charge at school sites that offer snacks during qualified After-School Enrichment Programs.
