Columbia School District’s Child Nutrition Program is an integral part of the total educational program. The program exists for the benefit of the students and their overall health and education. Our goal is to provide attractive, well-prepared food of high nutritional value and to strive to make sure each child enjoys their dining experience. All of our meals served must meet standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call or email. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help meet the nutritional requirements of your children. We appreciate the opportunity to do so.
Children need healthy meals to learn. The Columbia School District offers healthy meals every school day. Below you will find the link to the online Free/Reduced Meal Application. Please click on the link and complete your Free/Reduced Meal Application for your household today!
The Columbia School District will be operating under the Summer Food Service Program for School Year 2020-2021. It is free to all children who are 18 and under. The program will begin October 1st, 2020 through May 25th, 2021. Through this program, all meals will be free to students. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
