Fruits and vegetables


Bullet PointAbout Our Program

The Randolph County School System offers a wide variety of milk, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and proteins. Our school menus are analyzed regularly to ensure students are receiving healthy, well-balanced meals that meet all federal nutrition standards. In addition to meeting nutrition standards, our schools provide fresh fruits and vegetables from North Carolina farmers, as well as offer higher quality food items that are made from scratch in our cafeteria's daily. To learn more about the federal nutrition standards, visit www.fns.usda.gov/school-meals/child-nutrition-programs


dot Free/Reduced Meal Program

The Free/Reduced Priced Meal Program is available to help families with the cost of school meals. Families MUST apply for meal benefits each school year. 

  • Each student should receive an application for free/reduced meal benefits at the beginning of each school year. If eligible, you will only need to fill out ONE application per household. This form can be returned to any Randolph County School cafeteria or can be mailed to School Nutrition Services using the self-addressed envelope that comes with each application.
  • Applications will also be available at the Randolph County School System Board of Education Administration building at the beginning of August if you would like to complete your application early. This will ensure your application is processed before school begins.
  • Each school will have applications available throughout the school year in the event you did not submit an application at the beginning of the year.
  • Once an application is approved, students may eat breakfast and lunch on their status of free, reduced, or paid.

Please remember, if you have students that were approved for meal benefits during the 2016-2017 school year, they will only remain on the previous year's status for the first 30 days of school. You may notify School Nutrition Services if you have a student starting school and would like to confirm they will receive the previous year's status for the first 30 days.
