What's the News for School Nutrition

School Nutrition Services is happy to announce both breakfast and lunch meals will be available at no cost to all Chatham County Schools students for the 2021-2022 School Year. This school year we will operate on the Summer Seamless Option, an extension of the USDA School Breakfast and National School Lunch Program. We will return to the meal patterns associated with those programs.


This Year's Menu

The School Nutrition team is very excited for our students, staff and visitors to participate in our meal services. We have exciting new menu items to offer, such as our new Jack Links and Yogurt Protein Packs.

As our Chatham County School Nutrition programs are preparing to return to normal service and menus, we are facing unprecedented issues with the supply chain that will undoubtedly cause us to alter our posted menus with little to no notice.
School Nutrition Services is working very closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure both the food and supply items needed to support our programs across the district, however the availability of these items has been changing on a daily basis.
While it is our intention to serve the posted menu every day at every school, supply issues will not make this possible throughout this school year until the supply chain issues are corrected within the industry.
When changes to the posted school menu become necessary, we will attempt to substitute the scheduled menu item with another that is as similar, based on the products we are able to receive.

Check out our new menu offerings for the upcoming school year.  See meal price information below.


Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)

North Carolina children who are eligible for summer P-EBT will receive a one-time payment of $375, a standard benefit amount set by the United States Department of Agriculture. The summer benefit amount is not dependent on learning mode or participation in virtual instruction. Families will receive $375 per eligible child even if they become eligible through being approved for FNS or free or reduced priced meals later in the summer (on or before August 31). For more info, visit #NCPEBT


Los niños de Carolina del Norte que son elegibles para P-EBT de verano recibirán un pago único de $375, un monto de beneficio estándar establecido por el Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos. El monto del beneficio de verano no depende del modo de aprendizaje ni de la participación en la instrucción virtual. Las familias recibirán $375 por niño elegible incluso si se vuelven elegibles a través de la aprobación para FNS o comidas gratis o a precio reducido más adelante en el verano (el 31 de agosto o antes).
