Bertie County School Nutrition
National School Breakfast Week 2024
March 4 -8, 2024
Mission: Bertie County School Nutrition Program is committed to providing wholesome, nutritious, appealing meals in a pleasant environment that will enhance the education of all students while maintaining the financial stability of the program.
Vision: To enhance the education of students through wholesome, nutritious and appealing meals.
Bertie County School Nutrition provides nutritionally balanced free meals to all students daily through the National School Lunch Program, National Breakfast Program and Afterschool Program. On average, we serve over 1350 lunches and over 1150 breakfasts each day.
Studies have proven that by eating healthy and nutritious meals, students perform better academically and socially.
We offer fresh NC grown produce through the Farm to School Program.
We are partnering with several organizations to help educate students on nutritious meals and will provide students with the opportunity to plan a student menu for one week. We believe student input is invaluable.
To find out more about these partnerships, we invite parents to join our local Student Health Advisory Council. Please give me a call at (252) 794-6038 or Montez Bishop, Director of Student Support Services (252) 794-6059.
