The Union County Public Schools - School Nutrition Services Department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are ServSafe certified and dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods, and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.



At UCPS, we offer breakfast daily at all elementary, middle and high schools.  The breakfast menu offers a variety of fresh fruits, and whole grain selections to help start the day right for our students. At some schools, we provide grab & go breakfast in the classrooms and for a few of our schools, they participate in universal –free breakfast.
**If your student is eligible for Free or Reduced Lunch prices, they will also be able to receive a Free breakfast each morning as well.  

Our Lunch Program offers a wide variety of healthy menu options that meet all 5 meal components guidelines for both kids and teen. The 5 components that make up a meal, include meat/meat alternative, whole grain, vegetable, fruit, and milk. 

Both the breakfast and lunch menus are planned by our Nutrition Team which includes: Cafeteria Managers, Area Supervisors, Registered Dietitian, Chef, and the School Nutrition Director.



We have 30 elementary schools, 9 middle schools, and 11 high schools. During the school year, we serve close to 4 million meals including after-school snacks. At our summer school programs, we serve over 15,000 meals. 

We are self-supporting. No financial support is currently received from local tax dollars to support our program.  The majority of funds we receive are from our customers (students and adults) that eat with us and a small reimbursement from the Federal Government.
