2022 Winter Break Meal Service
Free, hot meals for children ages 18 and under will be offered at select schools on four occasions during the Winter academic break. Due to changes at the federal level, the program will be different than it was last year. The child must be present to receive the meal. The meal must be consumed on site. The meal will consist of a choice of entrée (meat or meat alternate + whole grain), vegetable, fruit, and milk. Meals are limited to one per child, per serving day. Adults are encouraged to accompany their child, but no adult meals will be provided. Participants may visit any open site but may not get a meal from more than one site in the same day. Information that will be requested to receive a meal is the child’s name, school they attend (if school aged), or age (if not enrolled in school).
Serving time is 11:00 AM- 1:00 PM.
Dates are: Mon Dec 19, Wed Dec 21, Tue Dec 27, and Thu Dec 29
Sites are: Azalea Middle School, Berkley/Campostella Early Childhood Center, Booker T. Washington High School, Camp Allen Elementary, Norview Elementary School, Oceanair Elementary School
Please note- access points may be located around the side or back of the school and will be indicated with signage.
All other NPS School Nutrition locations and programs will be closed for meal service during Winter Break.
Shortages and supply chain issues have brought great challenges at all points of the chain -- from raw materials and manufacturing to packaging and transporting. In addition to food, this shortage affects the paper products used to serve meals. At the same time, many schools are affected by staffing issues. Yet, despite these challenges, school nutrition teams are working tirelessly behind the scenes to secure the necessary items needed to provide students with a healthy and balanced meal. In this video, SNA shares what parents need to know about supply chain issues and their current impact on school meals.Author:Length:
