Fueling Healthier Minds and Bodies

Greetings Parents,

Berrien County Nutrition Department prides itself on providing nutritious, healthy meals to our students. Our mission is to provide the opportunity of a well-balanced healthy meal today for their excellence tomorrow.
 
The School Nutrition Program will assist our students in getting the nutrition they need to learn, grow and develop. Menus must adhere to strict guidelines issued by USDA. Each meal planned must provide the required (USDA) number of food components and meet the nutrient standards for the age/grade group served.  
 
Each cafeteria is equipped with a point of sale system for tracking reimbursable meals and payments. All Berrien County students are assigned a student identification/account number. Students are required to learn their meal number to use at POS station. Our District is afforded the wonderful opportunity to provide meals at no cost to students for SY 18-19 as a part of the federal funding partnership of CEP ( Community Eligibility Provision).
 
No meal charges will exist. If a student wants to purchase additional items outside of their reimbursable meal there will be a cost and he/she will be allowed only if they have cash in their account or in hand.
 
Sincerely,
 
Courtney Johnson, Director MAED/AET
