Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

Director of School Nutrition Services is Mr. Carey Athey, assisted by Mrs. Deba Whitt.  School Nutrition in Dinwiddie County Public Schools has a staff of 40 that prepares and serves approximately 526,000 meals annually in seven schools.  School Nutrition Services is unique in the school system because they are self-supporting; they pay for all direct costs, payroll and administrative expenses.  About 20% of School Nutrition’s income comes from the sale of meals and A la Carte items. The remaining amount comes from state and federal reimbursements for meals served.  Our mission is to provide the best food service possible to students, staff and community by serving nutritious, healthy and appealing food while maintaining a healthy, safe environment, good customer service and financial integrity.

School Nutrition Services department serves breakfast and lunch to students each full school day throughout our division. In addition to breakfast and lunch, schools will have additional a la carte items for sale during students’ normal lunch time.
