National School Lunch Program

The National School Lunch Program, established in 1946, is the oldest and largest of the Child Nutrition Programs. It is a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritious, low-cost or free lunches to students each day. Specific meal patterns and nutrition standards are required in the National School Lunch Program and are based on the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americanshttps://www.cde.state.co.us/

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act (HHFKA) was inacted in 2010 that contains many provisions that help improve school meals by requiring schools to offer more nutritious foods.  HHFKA requires schools to:

  • Ensure students are offered both fruits and vegetables every day of the week;
  • Increase offerings of whole grain-rich foods;
  • Offer only fat-free or low-fat milk;
  • Limit calories based on the age of children being served to ensure proper portion size; 
  • Increase the focus on reducing the amounts of saturated fat, trans fats, added sugars, and sodium.

Lunch Pricing

  • First lunch for enrolled students: Free
  • Second lunch for enrolled students: $2.50

National School Lunch Program Resources

 

Afterschool Snack

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) offers reimbursement to help schools serve snacks to children after their regular school day ends. Afterschool snacks give children a nutritional boost and draw them into supervised activities that are safe, fun and filled with learning opportunities. https://www.cde.state.co.us

 

Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program       

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day.  The program is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthful snack options, and is seen as an important catalyst for change in efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. The FFVP introduces school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to sample.The FFVP also encourages schools to develop partnerships at the state and local level for support in implementing and operating the program. https://www.cde.state.co.us/
