Nutrition & Child Health

The Nutrition Services Department administers the School Breakfast Program, National School Lunch Program, and Summer Lunch Program.  We prepare about 8,000 meals per day with 95 employees.  The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is responsible for guidance and funding for our programs.  USDA  provides us with cash reimbursements and commodities.  The nutrition guidelines we follow are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.  We strive to provide nutritious attractive meals for students and encourage them to develop good eating habits.

Child health is very important to the Council Bluffs School District.  Not only regarding meals and exercise, but ensuring that every student has the proper immunizations and is taking the correct medications if needed. We strive to keep students healthy both in mind and body so that they can function and grow to the best of their ability.

The Council Bluffs Community School District is pleased to be able to offer a new Community Eligibility Program in 11 Council Bluffs schools. This program provides free breakfast and lunch each school day to children who will attend Bloomer, Carter Lake, Edison, Franklin, Hoover, Longfellow, Roosevelt, Rue, Kirn Middle School, Wilson Middle School and Thomas Jefferson High School. Students at the other district schools may still apply for free or reduced-priced meals as they have in the past, but their families will need to meet income eligibility guidelines.
