Additional Assistance Available:
Sycamore Bridges has joined forces with Operation Give Back to assemble supplemental food bags for families in need. The distribution will occur on Mondays at the same time and locations as our Child Nutrition Services meal deliveries. Families who are unable to meet Sycamore Bridges during the Child Nutrition delivery times should contact Operation Give Back directly for food pick up.
Child Nutrition Services serves breakfast and lunch daily at all 7 of our schools.
We incorporate whole grains, low-fat dairy options, fresh produce and low sodium products into every meal at an affordable price. We offer side items to enhance a meal or provide an after school snack. All a la carte items we sell are smart snack compliant. Click here to learn what guidelines we have to follow. We are a self-supporting district department, meaning no tax dollars fund the CNS department and all CNS costs (equipment, supplies, and salaries) are paid via students or staff purchasing a school meal and federal reimbursement from the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.
Child Nutrition Services also provides meals to local parochial schools. Proceeds from these programs go to Sycamore Child Nutrition Services to assist in the improvement of the district program.
