Program Goal: Provide nutritious, appetizing meals for students at a reasonable price in a pleasant environment.
The Child Nutrition Program offers nutritious breakfasts and lunches at every school building. Proper nutrition is fundamental for the success of academic programs. Our meals meet the new USDA Nutrition Standards, which requires the following:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
- More whole grains
- Less sodium

For the current school year, Hayes Elementary is a part of the CEP Grant. This means that all children will receive free breakfast and lunch. No child will be denied breakfast or lunch. Families may still choose to fill out the Home Income Survey to qualify for free or reduced school fees.
