School Nutrition   


Transylvania County Schools School Nutrition Services is committed to ensuring your child receives appealing, high-quality, and nutritious meals daily.  School meals fuel students for learning throughout the day.

Our mission is to contribute to the academic success of every student and encourage a lifetime of healthy eating.  We believe students learn best when they are properly nourished.  We also believe we have the power to impact the lives of the students we serve positively.  All meals, snacks, and beverages served and sold at schools meet state and federal requirements based on USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans.  

Please encourage your child to eat with us daily!
