The Trevor-Wilmot Consolidated School Board supports programs for students, families, and staff that promote healthy and nutritious eating habits and regular physical activity as necessary strategies for improving student achievement and preventing health problems. Therefore, school lunch and school breakfast programs may be provided as determined by the Board.

The Board may supply school lunches and school breakfasts free or at a reduced price to children whose parents are unable to pay the prevailing price and provide the prescribed food quality as determined by criteria based on state and federal guidelines. The school principal shall be the delegated authority to determine eligibility. The District Administrator or his/her designee shall determine district compliance with this policy and report annually to the Board of Education.

The District shall make available information regarding the nutritional content of the meals covered under this policy, with the objective of promoting student health and reducing childhood obesity. The District acknowledges there may be food products and food sold or distributed by third parties or staff on school property or in conjunction with school events which may not adhere to this policy. This policy only applies to food sold or provided through the breakfast or lunch program provided by the District.

One’s personal nutrition and exercise habits are ultimately the responsibility of the individual. The Trevor-Wilmot Consolidated Grade School District is only obligated to educate its students so these students may make informed decisions about their own diet and exercise routines specific to their individual circumstances.
