Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) supports student health and achievement by ensuring that all DCPS students receive nutritious meals that support academic success. We believe in providing appetizing school meals made from fresh, locally produced ingredients, and we strive to engage the entire DC community in implementing programs that encourage healthy decision-making and promote sustainable practices. DCPS participates in the following Child Nutrition Programs through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA): National School Lunch Program, National School Breakfast Program, Child and Adult Care Food Program, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, and the Summer Food Service Program.
