National School Lunch Program

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in the Clark County School District, which provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to students.

The goal of the CCSD Child Nutrition Program is to serve nutritious, appetizing, and affordable meals to students. We believe that good nutrition is an important key to learning and that every child has the right to a nutritious breakfast and lunch at the lowest possible price.

Menus are posted in all school cafeterias and are available online.

Breakfast is currently offered to elementary school students for $1.25. Middle school and high school breakfast cost $1.50. Lunch is $2.00 at elementary schools and $3.25 at middle schools and high schools. Free and reduced price meals are available to qualifying students at elementary, middle, high schools.

Policy Statement: The USDA, Food and Nutrition Service Instruction 791-1 (revised) prohibits the denial of meals as a disciplinary action to all children who participate in the school nutrition program. The prohibition does not extend to the denial of meals for failure to pay. The school will not provide free meals unless the student qualifies for free meal benefits. Students who do not qualify for free meals must pay for their meals.

For further information regarding the child nutrition program, or for assistance in completing the meal benefit application call the Free and Reduced Food Service Office at 1-800-819-7556.
