Child Nutrition

The Amherst County Public School Child Nutrition staff works diligently to provide nutritious and delicious meals to our students, staff and visitors. We offer a large selection of items to choose from.  A variety of fresh fruits and vegetables are available every day.  All of the grains that we offer are Whole Grain Rich.  We also offer locally grown produce that is available throughout the year.  Our flavored milk products are fat free and we offer unflavored milk in Skim and 1%.  Our menus meet all USDA guidelines in regards to calories, fat, saturated fat and sodium.  
We encourage our students to start their day off with a healthy breakfast from our school breakfast program.  Fresh fruit, 100% Juice, cereal, graham crackers, and yogurt are available every morning in addition to our menued items.  
We offer online prepayments for parents/guardians interested in putting money on their child(ren)’s account electronically. You will need to know your child’s student ID number, which can be obtained from their school. Please see the mySchoolBucks link below to set up an online account.
Our goal is to serve appetizing, nutritious and safe meals at an affordable price.  If you have any questions or concerns you can contact us at the numbers below.  Thank you for allowing us to serve your children and we hope to see you in the cafeteria!
