Providing Meals for Our Students

The Jamestown School District is committed to providing healthy school meals and snacks to the students of Jamestown Elementary and Chinese Camp Science Acedemy in order to support student academic success and promote healthful eating habits that lead to lifelong positive nutrition practices.

School meals are served to students under the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. Meals and snacks are also served through the United States Department of Agriculture’s Seamless Summer Option and the Child and Adult Care Feeding Program. Following the nutrition guidelines prescribed by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, we serve whole-grain rich products; low fat and fat free milk; 100% fruit and/or vegetable juices; and a variety of fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables.
