The goal of the Forrest County Agricultural High School Child Nutrition Program is to provide exceptional service while providing our students, staff, and guests with nutritious meals at a reasonable price.

Forrest County AHS participates in the National School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program through an agreement with the Mississippi Department of Education. Each meal must meet USDA requirements and are designed to meet one-third of the daily recommended dietary allowance and contribute to each student's mental and physical development. These programs provide nutritionally balanced. low-cost or free lunches to children every school day.

Our program is federally funded and abides by state and federal regulations which include:

  • Items that can be prepared

  • Items that can be sold as extra sales

  • The number of calories allowed for meals by following standardized recipes


**** Why Aren't Meals Free in the 2022-2023 School Year?

The USDA made it possible for school nutrition programs to serve all students free breakfast and lunch for the past 2 years through waivers approved by congress.

Those waivers were not extended for the 2022-23 school year so Forrest Coounty AHS will return to its normal paid, free and reduced priced breakfast and lunch.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
