Farm to School Program Growing & Growing!
Camp Lejeune Schools is procuring fresh garden produce harvested across the state through a partnership with the N.C. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Defense Merchandising Office. Through this program, students can look forward to North Carolina grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Through an initiative with the USDA, students will enjoy a variety of seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables.
CLDS Summer Child Nutrition Services Program was established as an act
of Congress with the belief that nutritious meals should not
end when school vacation begins. The program is primarily directed
toward children in needy areas, however, nutritious meals served
may benefit all children in an approved geographical area regardless
of a family's economic status.
meals served to children 18 years of age and younger are
FREE! Adults accompanying children may purchase
lunch items a la carte.
All lunches served to children during this program are free,
however, children may purchase extras of menu items or select
from a variety of a la carte items. Some of the items that may be available for sale
include fresh fruits, bottled water, juices, extra milk,
tea, fruit drinks, sports drinks, and ice cream!
The Summer Food Services Program has operated aboard Camp Lejeune since 1989 and provides meals to more than 600 children each day during the six-week long program!
