School Food Service

Providing healthy foods that nourish the brain and body for better learning outcomes!



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 for more information on healthy eating.

Notice:  Availibility of Free Meals in School Year 2021-2022 

Iberville Parish School Board announced its policy today that this school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.  Each school/site or central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed upon request.

While no application or eligibility determination is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.

Comunicado de prensa para la opción perfecta de verano Comidas gratuitas en el año escolar 2021-2022 

Iberville Parish School Board anunció hoy su política de que este año escolar, se ofrecerán comidas saludables todos los días escolares a todos los estudiantes sin costo alguno. Por lo general, el hogar de un estudiante debe cumplir con los requisitos de elegibilidad de ingresos para calificar para comidas gratis o de precio reducido. Sin embargo, el Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos (USDA) emitió una guía que permite a las escuelas ofrecer comidas a todos los estudiantes sin costo para el año escolar 2021-2022.  Cada escuela / sitio u oficina central tiene una copia de la política, que se puede revisar a pedido.

Si bien no se requiere una solicitud o determinación de elegibilidad para que su estudiante reciba comidas gratis este año escolar, los requisitos de elegibilidad de ingresos probablemente se reanudarán en el año escolar 2022-2023.

And Justice For All Poster



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

All enrolled students of an Iberville Parish public school site are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2021-2022 school year.
