Welcome to the Child Nutrition Department
Isle of Wight County Child Nutrition Department participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch program and is responsible for preparing more than 3,500 meals each day. We encourage every child to participate in school breakfast and lunch programs, which provide well-balanced and well-prepared meals, as well as a la carte and snack items that meet all Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act guidelines.
Child Nutrition offers a variety of menu selections which are designed to ensure we meet the nutritional needs of our students as established by new USDA guidelines.
Our department continuously works on teaching the importance of healthy eating habits, as part of healthy lifestyle. Parents are encouraged to prepay for their children's meals. The website www.lunchprepay.com
, enables parents secure credit card payment options. There are two tiers - the premium account has a one-time enrollment fee of $10 for a family, with a transaction fee of $1.95 which gives parents access to 45 days of history for purchases and the ability to set up low balance warning. The basic account shows no history but will allow parents to make payments with a $1.95 transaction fee.
All students enrolled in Isle of Wight County Schools are given an opportunity to apply for free and reduced price meals. Forms can be obtained from your school's cafeteria, Food Service main office, or by looking at the pdf below.
