The Marion County School District Child Nutrition program is a federally funded organization and includes the National School Breakfast Program (NSBP) as well as the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). These programs provide nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children every school day. They were established under the National School Lunch Act that was signed by President Harry Truman in 1946.

The Child Nutrition Program is federally funded and abides by state and federal regulations. Every meal served must meet USDA requirements. This allows for reimbursement of free, reduced and full paying priced meals. The status of each child is strictly confidential.

The program serves teachers and staff, as well as visiting parents, who would like a meal.
