Children who participate in school meal programs get roughly half of their calories each day at school. This is an extraordinary responsibility and opportunity. We strive to make school meals as healthy, nutritious and delicious as possible. Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) went into effect and required schools to meet multiple nutrition guidelines aimed at improving children’s health and decreasing obesity rates. In everything that we do in the Nutrition Services Department, our mission is to nourish minds.

“Iowa City Schools is proud to partner with Field to Family to provide local produce and dairy to our students. Through our partnership, Iowa City Schools have increased the amount of locally-grown food on our school lunch menu annually since 2012.”

Eligible students will receive $120 each ($40 per month for the summer) for the use of purchasing food. Students and families may use their benefits to purchase eligible food items anywhere SNAP EBT cards are accepted. Funds will be mailed to student households via a new P-EBT card.
