Welcome to the Wilcox County Public School System Child Nutrition Program

School Lunch tray with wrap

The primary objective of the Wilcox County Public School System's 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 2019-2020 school year, the Wilcox County Public School System will continue to participate in Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) on all campuses under the United States Department of Agriculture Community Eligibility 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 to receive one reimbursable supper meal at no charge at the school site(s) that offer supper meals during qualified After-School Enrichment Programs. More information about the At-Risk Supper Program will be sent out at a later date.

Meal Prices for 2019-2020

The Wilcox County Public School System participates in the Offer vs. Serve program for both breakfast and lunch. Breakfast consists of Grains (with optional meat/meat alternate subsitution allowed), Fruit/Vegetable and Milk. Each morning four components will be offered. Students must take at least 3 of the 4 components including 1/2 cup fruit or vegetable plus at least 2 of the other components. Lunch consists of Meat/Meat Alternate, Vegetables, Fruits, Grains and Milk. All five components will be offered each day.
