Child Nutrition Program
At Huntsville City Schools we have a passion for supporting academic excellence through the nutritional quality of the food we serve. Well-fed students are more alert and can fully benefit from educational and enrichment activities.
The Huntsville City Child Nutrition Department is dedicated to offering three nutritious meals a day to our students. All meals and food products fall within very strict government health guidelines.
