Child Nutrition

The East Baton Rouge Parish School System (EBRPSS) Child Nutrition Program (CNP) provides nutritious, appetizing, and affordable meals to students and staff. CNP administrators believe that good nutrition is the key to learning and that every student has the right to be served a nutritious breakfast and lunch at a low price. These meals should be served in a clean, safe, and pleasant environment.

CNP employees serve 55,000 meals daily. Schools with an after-school program that includes a tutorial component may also apply for the Supper Program that provides students with a light meal right after the school day ends. Fifteen schools participate the USDA’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Each student is offered one lunch and one breakfast free of charge under the USDA Community Eligibility Provision Program. Students may purchase additional food items at a minimal cost or an extra meal at the adult price.

Students who eat school meals will receive meals that emphasize the importance of healthy eating habits and portion control to help maintain a healthy body weight. Studies show that students should eat breakfast daily to help boost concentration levels.
