Hunger doesn’t take a Summer Vacation!

2018 Summer Child Nutrition Program
Nutritious Summer Meals for Children and Teens Aged 1-18 Years

This summer children can enjoy free lunches through Provo City School District’s Summer Child Nutrition Program beginning Monday, June 4, 2018! The Summer Meals Program assures that all children have access to healthy food during the summer when schools are not in session so they can continue to learn and grow. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the federally funded nutrition program is open to all kids aged 1-18 years. No applications are necessary to drop in for a meal and all children and teens are welcome! In addition to lunch, all Provo summer meal sites offer free breakfast to accompany a day of fun and educational activities.

Provo School District Superintendent, Keith Rittel, and the Child Nutrition Program, recognize the need for nutritious meals for our children during the summer months when they can’t eat at school. The Summer Meals Program serves as a key building block in our community helping to ensure kids return to school healthy, happy, and ready to learn.

The Summer Meals Program is available to all children and teens 1-18 years old. Children must eat their meal in the school cafeteria. Parents/Adults may purchase a breakfast for $2.00 and/or a lunch for $4.00 to enjoy a meal with their child(ren). Please be aware that the menu may change due to product availability.

The Summer Child Nutrition Program, administered by USBE Child Nutrition Programs, are located at approved sites that are in low-income areas, or serve a group of children most of whom are low income. These meals must meet the same nutritional standards as the other Child Nutrition Programs. Following is a list of schools with the dates and times they will be serving breakfast and lunch during the summer break.

A Message from the Child Nutrition Director

School year 2017/2018 brings new and exhilarating changes!

We are thrilled to have our students back in the classroom and filling our lunchrooms with energy and enthusiasm as they enjoy eye appealing, nutritious meals prepared by our very own CNP Professionals! Once again, we look forward to providing a large variety of made-from-scratch entrees, eye-catching, colorful and delicious tasting menu items, whole grain rich foods, and an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables daily!

Popular entrees such as the ‘Bistro Hamburger Garden Bar’ will continue in the middle and high schools including many tasty choices for students to add to their whole grain bun and hamburger patty such as gourmet cheeses, fresh or sautéed mushrooms and onions, tomatoes, thinly sliced cucumbers, assorted fresh peppers, arugula, spring mix, and several more! Another returning favorite is the ‘Oodles of Noodles Bar’ which allows students to choose their whole grain pasta, Marinara or Alfredo sauce, chicken, and a garden of fresh or sautéed toppings such as assorted peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, assorted squash, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, peas, and the list goes on! Other returning favorites include General Tso’s Chicken, Buffalo Chicken Wraps, and Hot Italian Meatball Sandwiches in all secondary schools, and the ‘Baked-In-House’ Baked Potato Bar with all the fixings at every school!

Some NEW and AMAZING recipes this year in both elementary and secondary schools include our Street Pork Tacos with Citrus Slaw, and tasty Mashed Potato Bowl. We are also excited to introduce a scrumptious Dill Chicken Sandwich in the secondary schools.

We are so excited to offer our students great tasting, made-from-scratch choices! For your convenience, menus are available here and on our Facebook page.

We have planned activities and fun in the lunchroom once again!

This year’s theme ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling!’ is a step-up from last year’s well-received theme of ‘Seeds of Change.’ This theme centers on being happy, positive, and maintaining a ‘get back up again’ attitude while nourishing the mind and body with good nutrition and physical wellness. Visiting Provo schools this year on a rotating schedule, Yoga and Martial Arts Instructor, Joe Perry, will help educate students on the importance of exercise and physical activity. Watch for your school’s ‘Yoga with Joe’ and ‘Martial Arts for Physical Fitness: Kick It Up to the Next Level’ specialty days in the lunchroom! Students will enjoy every minute…and laughter, excitement, health and wellness will fill every cafeteria.

Thank you for the privilege to serve your children delicious and healthy meals!

We are going to have a wonderful year in Provo City School District Child Nutrition!

The Provo School District Child Nutrition Program was honored to receive the 2018 Best of State Award for being the top Education Support Personnel group in Utah for the ninth consecutive year. This statewide award is given to outstanding businesses, programs, groups, or individuals. More than one hundred judges scrutinize the nominations for the Best of State Award. The judges sought out individuals, businesses and organizations that excel in their endeavors, use innovative approaches, and make Utah a better place to live.

Jon M. Huntsman Jr., former Governor of Utah said, "Best of State recognizes those who are excelling and surpassing all else and who are the best of the best in their respective fields."

The Child Nutrition Program is thrilled and honored to win the Best of State award for the ninth consecutive year. We are constantly trying to enhance the already nutritious and healthy meals served in Provo Schools, and to continue our yearly themed activities to increase the activity of the students. Studies show that children are better able to learn after eating a nutritious meal, and our dedicated Nutrition team is happy to do their part in helping each student be fit, healthy, and ready to succeed in school. We are proud of our Child Nutrition Program as we strive to continue to promote healthy lifestyles that will have life-long benefits.

Please enjoy the video below of our past CNP Director as our Child Nutrition Department was featured in a national School Nutrition Association, "Tray Talk" video. We know that delicious and nutritious, prepared from scratch menus, and increased activity of our students go hand in hand to make a healthier generation! We are thrilled to partner with Chefs and others to make our program the best it can be!
