School Nutrition
Greetings, Monroe County Schools families.  It is with much excitement that I, Lisa Budd, Director of School Nutrition, announce that the School Nutrition Department will be providing breakfast and lunch at no charge for the remainder of the school year 2020-2021.  This benefit comes with a debt of gratitude to the United States Department of Agriculture that recognizes the need to serve our students consistent healthy and balanced meals during this very dynamic time.  We hope that your student will join us Monday through Friday for breakfast and lunch and enjoy our tasty meals that have been prepared with love by our very own School Nutrition staff.  We are working diligently to continue to innovate and create new meal offerings, so our students will experience several choices for each meal service.  Thank you so much, and we look forward to seeing your student soon!

All in good health,
Lisa W. Budd, MS
