School Nutrition Services
School Nutrition Services in Henrico County Public Schools has a staff of 500 who prepare and serve over 8,800 breakfasts and 24,700 lunches to Henrico students every day. That’s a total of more than 5,500,000 meals a year! You could say we were one of the original “fast-food” operations because we have always had the challenge of serving thousands of children every day in a short period of time.
School Nutrition Services is a unique department in the school system because we are 100% self-supporting. We pay for all direct expenses, payroll, administrative costs and utilities. About half of our income comes from the sale of meals and à la carte items and the remaining half comes from state and federal funds to reimburse us for the free and reduced meals we provide. We receive no local tax funds for our program.
