SCHOOL NUTRITION

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.

“The Thomasville City Schools are participating in the Seamless Summer Option for the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs in school year 21-22. All Thomasville City Schools are offering meals at no charge to all students for the 21-22 school year. Households are not required to complete meal applications to qualify for meals at no cost.”
