The School Nutrition Program offers nutritious breakfasts and lunches each day throughout the school year. School meals provide nourishment that is important to children's growth, academic achievement and physical performance. School meals are planned around Nutrition Standards as set forth by law and the United States Department of Agriculture and follow Meal Patterns for minimum portions and nutritional values.

PARTICIPATION AND COST DATA Meal prices are kept as low as possible to encourage students to participate in the school breakfast and lunch programs, and the focus continues to be on providing nutritious meals for students. The Thomasville City Schools are a partial Community Eligibility Option(CEP) district. Under this program all students at MPMS, Scott, and Harper will be provided meals during the school day at no charge. This option covers one breakfast and one lunch each school day. Parents will not need to complete a Family Meal Application for this program. Thomasville High and Jerger Elementary are Non-CEP schools, which means students may qualify for the free or reduced-price meal benefits by completing a current year Family Meal Application.
All students have an individual cafeteria account. Money can be applied to student accounts by sending money with the student or thru the on-line program of MySchoolBucks.com. Parents/guardians may view their child/children’s cafeteria balance once parents/guardians have established a Parent Registration thru MySchoolBucks.com. If parents need assistance with MySchoolBucks call Denise Wagner at (229)225-2600.  Students may purchase a second meal at the standard price listed below for an adult or a visitor meal or purchase extra items from their cafeteria account balance.
