Welcome to the Henry County Child Nutrition Department

    The mission of the Child Nutrition Program at Henry County Schools is to provide its customers with access to food that is appealing and acceptable, prepared and served by compassionate and caring people and to manage our program in a nutritionally and financially accountable manner.

    The collection of race and ethnicity data on meal applications is to determine how effectively school Meal Programs are reaching potentially eligible students. Providing this data is voluntary, your responses are kept confidential, and responses will have no effect on eligibility. Eligibility criteria are set by the United States Department of Agriculture.
