|Tuscumbia City Child Nutrition Program
The Tuscumbia City Child Nutrition Program's mission is to ensure our students healthy meals daily. We believe "Hungry Children Cannot Learn."
Tuscumbia City Schools are commited to helping students make healthy food choices at school. Our goal is that students will develop lifelong eating habits that will encourage them to adopt healthier ways of living and to reduce obesity and other chronic diseases.
Eating a healthy breakfast and lunch should be an important part of our lives and we strive to teach this to our young people. Encouraging our students to eat nutritious meals in the cafeteria is our way of helping develop these lifelong eating habits. Eating a well balanced meal at both breakfast and lunch will help our young people to perform at their maximum potential in school.
Free and reduced priced meals applications are available for students who qualify. Applications can be viewed under links or picked up in each school office or at the board of education.
The National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs are regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
We appreciate all of you who participate in our schools' breakfast and lunch programs. We strive to provide tasty, healthy meals to our young people. We look forward to serving the children.
