School Meals: Building Healthy Student Bodies

The Carrollton City Schools Nutrition Program is an integral part of our educational system. More than 6,000 nutritious, well-balanced meals are served by our professional staff each day to students, faculty members and visitors. Menus are planned to incorporate the USDA dietary guidelines, which include offering fresh vegetables and fruits, as well as increasing daily fiber intake and reducing total fat and sodium content. All of our school facilities provide breakfast and lunch service.

Schools send school meal applications home at the beginning of each school year. However, you may apply for school meals at any time throughout the school year by submitting a household application directly to your school. Your school will provide you with an application upon request.

If you are earning at or below current Income Eligibility Guidelines, we encourage you to contact your school to fill out a school meal application. The school or local education agency will process your application and issue an eligibility determination.

If you are receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, your child automatically qualifies for free school meals. Please contact your school to determine if you need to fill out an application.
