Providing healthy foods that nourish the brain and body for better learning outcomes!
CHILD NUTRITION PROGRAM
Iberville Parish continues to strive to provide healthier meals for students. The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act is the most recent federal legislation which provides updated nutrition standards for school meals, based on expert science-based recommendations from the Institute of Medicine. These nutrition standards coincide with the MyPlate graphic, developed by the USDA to illustrate how healthier menu selections should shape your plate. Please visit MyPlate.gov for more information on healthy eating.
If you believe you experienced discrimination when obtaining services from USDA, participating in a USDA program, or a program that receives financial assistance from USDA, you may file a complaint with USDA. OASCR, through the Office of Adjudication, will investigate and resolve complaints of discrimination in programs operated or assisted by USDA.

Making positive eating choices just got a little easier.
Iberville Parish School Board participates in an innovative school nutrition program intended to encourage students to enjoy wholesome, nutritious meals at school while eliminating paperwork for parents.
The program, known as Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as a means of ensuring students get the food they need to do their best at school. Recent studies reveal that when students are hungry, they are often distracted in the classroom, they are absent from school more often and score lower on standardized tests.
The program allows all Iberville Parish School Board students to receive breakfast and lunch at school at no cost to the student or their household. Additionally, no school meal application is required.
This community-based program will only be as successful as the community that supports it. The greater the number of students that participate in the program by enjoying breakfast and lunch at school, the more successful the program will be for achieving the academic goals of the district, so please encourage your children to participate in school meal programs
