About Us

We Engage, Inspire, and Empower because learning and good nutrition go hand in hand!

Our team of School Nutrition professionals look forward to serving our students.  We are dedicated to students' health, well-being, and their ability to learn.  Good nutrition is an integral part of the students academic success.  School Nutrition Services support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.  Our mission is to provide students and staff nutritious, affordable and appealing meals consisting of a variety of healthy choices and served in a safe and sanitary environment.

School cafeterias are open daily for breakfast and lunch.  In Catawba County we serve over 15,000 meals per day and our menus are developed with students in mind.  Our students participate in product testing and food samplings to ensure that school menus are student centered.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the United States Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidelines.  Our program provides students with access to a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, quality and appealing foods that meet their health and nutrition needs.  To learn more about the federal nutrition standards and School Nutrition Programs, please click here.
