The New Albany Floyd County Consolidated School Corporation's school lunch program is designed to provide one third of a student's recommended daily allowance of nutrients.
Menus are planned to ensure that they meet the new USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The meal pattern has four components: meat/meat-alternate foods, fruits/vegetables, bread/bread-equivalent foods, and milk as a beverage.
The United States Congress created the school lunch program in 1946 in the belief that "it is a measure of national security to safeguard the health and well being of the nation's children." The objective of the program is to provide nutritionally sound meals at an affordable price.

Breakfast is offered at some schools.
Free and reduced-price lunches and breakfasts are available to those students from families meeting specific income criteria.

Simply send money or a check in a sealed envelope labeled with your child's name, grade, and amount to be added to their lunch and/or breakfast account on Monday morning to the school cafeteria. you may prepay by the week, month or year, if you choose.
The money will be entered into your child's account and used only when they come through the breakfast or lunch line. your child's account can not be used for ala carte purchases. When their account gets low (3 meals left) the clerk will begin reminding them that they need to bring another prepayment. This is a convenient way to ensure that your child will be eating a well-balanced, nutritious school lunch every day.
Should you ever need to request a refund of the money on a student's meal account, simply complete and return this form.
