Welcome to Hickman County School Nutrition! The Hickman County School Nutrition Program is a team of professionals who are dedicated to students’ health, well being and ability to learn. We believe a healthy meal makes for a healthy student, which in turn, makes them a better student. The Nutrition Program serves students a breakfast and lunch at all of our schools.
We need your help to make sure all of our students are fully prepared for academic success. We all know that hungry children have a more difficult time doing their best work. That’s why we encourage all students to energize their school day with nutritious breakfast.
The School Breakfast Program is available to all students every weekday morning. You do not have to register your child in advance. Your child can eat breakfast at school every day. School breakfast makes good sense–everyday, students are offered meals that include servings of fruit, whole grain-rich items, and low fat or fat free milk. These breakfasts are well balanced and follow standards backed by the best nutritional science available. Participation in the program also affords children a chance to enjoy a morning meal with their friends.
School Breakfast is an ideal solution on busy mornings when kids are running late or parents have to be at work early. Whatever the reason, if breakfast at home is not convenient, please have your child take advantage of breakfast here at school so that they may enjoy the numerous benefits of starting their day with a healthy meal.
Thank you for helping us to make sure that all of our students start the school day alert, well fed, and ready to learn. “In accordance with Federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, the USDA, its Agencies, offices, and employees, and institutions participating in or administering USDA programs are prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by USDA.
