JCSD#1’s food services operates under the federally funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). These programs are designed to promote the health and well-being of our children by providing nutritious meals to children in public and private schools as well as residential childcare institutions. Schools participating in these programs are required to provide meals that contain one-third of the Recommended Dietary Intakes (RDIs) for protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C and calories with no more than 30% of the calories from fat and less than 10% of the calories from saturated fat.


What are meal components?
Each lunch includes a milk, fruits, vegetables, a protein and a grain/bread.

What makes a school lunch?
Each student must take at least a 1/2 cup of fruit or a 1/2 cup of a vegetable, plus 2-4 additional meal components.

The salad bar provides a selection of fruits and vegetables daily.


What are the meal components at breakfast?
Each breakfast must offer a milk, fruits and a grain/bread. Proteins and vegetables are optional at breakfast.

What makes a school breakfast?
Each student must take at least a 1/2 cup of fruit plus 2 other food items. Keep in mind, many entrees are a combination of two breakfast components. There will be times when students must take everything that is offered in order to meet the federal requirements.


Our District also participates in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP), which provides all children in Cloud Peak Elementary with a variety of free, fresh fruits and vegetables at a designated snack time during the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options, and is seen as an important catalyst for change in efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. JCSD#1 is able to offer this program in its approved elementary schools for the current school year, through funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), administered by the Wyoming Department of Education.
