Child Nutrition


Dear Calhoun County School System Families:

Just to keep you all informed with what is happening in our school breakfast and lunch programs, the shortage of labor and distribution during the COVID pandemic has severely impacted our school district's food supply. Items being ordered are either partially received or not received at all; and, distributors have been up to ten days late on deliveries.  Meals are being prepared daily with food each school has on hand and available. Meals may have some of the same items as other days; and, this cannot be helped. This is not just happening in Calhoun county or the State of Mississippi. This is a nationwide problem. 

Remember: School menus are subject to change due to these shortages and outages. Please be patient with the cafeteria staff as they are just as frustrated as you are. 



Welcome to Child Nutrition Services!





The Calhoun County School District Child Nutrition Services Department is comprised of food service professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being, and their ability to learn. We support learning by providing nutritious meals daily and promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition.

Healthier Students:
Well-nourished students have higher test scores, increased school attendance, improved concentration, and improved classroom behavior. Students who are physically fit sleep better and are better able to handle the physical and emotional challenges they encounter during the day.

High Standards:
All foods served or sold at our schools meet state and federal nutritional requirements which are based on the United States Department of Agriculture 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.

The Parent-School partnership is of primary importance in supporting student health. Child Nutrition Services is committed to providing healthy, fresh, and delicious meals in a safe and clean environment, and we welcome your helpful suggestions.

Together, We Can Keep Our Children Growing!
