The Department of Child Nutrition oversees the development of school menus and all dietary and nutritional considerations for APS students.

We also administer the free breakfast and lunch program, where every APS student can enjoy breakfast and lunch at no charge. This program is available through the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and covers the full cost of serving meals at no charge to the entire district.
