Welcome to School Nutrition Services!


At Pickens County Schools, we know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

The School Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are 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.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Pickens County School Nutrition Program is to be a part of the education process by providing students with nutritious meals and nutrition education experiences that promote healthy children who are ready to learn.

Benefits to Children

The School Nutrition Program provides a nutritious breakfast and lunch for school children every day. Free or reduced-price meals are available to students whose families meet qualifying economic guidelines. The program provides meals that meet at least two-thirds of the recommended daily dietary allowances. Meal choices offered each day include: protein rich entrees, plenty of fruit and vegetable selections, whole-grain or enriched breads and cereals and calcium rich milk.
