Healthier choices for breakfast and lunch

There’s an old saying that goes, “You are what you eat.” If the saying is true, then the switch to healthier foods in the school cafeterias can only mean that the students in Bardstown City Schools are becoming healthier with every school meal.
For the past several years, Kentucky schools have been recognized as having one of the healthiest school nutrition programs in the nation. A decision by the state legislature concerning the types of foods and beverages that could be served in vending machines in the schools helped to spur the changes now seen in school cafeterias. (In Bardstown City Schools, vending machines are required to remain locked until at least 30 minutes after the end of the school day.) The Bardstown City Schools’ Food Services Program daily provides a nutritious breakfast and lunch for students.

The staff is composed of full- and part-time workers that are based at the district's five schools. The lunchrooms are managed on a day to day basis by the cafeteria manager with a staff of workers, and under the direct supervision of the building principal and the Director of Food services.

 Free Meal Program

The Free Meal Program Means More than Free Meals
The Bardstown City School District is fortunate to have many programs and services for students and families. Our children have the latest technology, research based classroom programs and certainly no student should ever be without school supplies, food, or clothing. In addition, services such as medical care, after school programs, tutoring, parent education, and health education is offered.
Bardstown City Schools can offer these services without direct cost to the local taxpayer. However, these programs, all or in part, are funded by grants based on the numbers of students eligible for free school meals. This information is gathered from the Free or Reduced Priced Meal Application that is sent home with your child at the beginning of the school year.

It is important that we not only keep existing programs intact, but that we expand services when the need in the community arises. If you think your family may qualify for free or reduced meals at school, please fill out a free or reduced meal application and return it to the school where your child attends.  (You may download this form on the right.)  All information is kept confidential.
If you have any questions about the free or reduced meal program, please contact Greta Cecil, Food Service Coordinator, at 331-8812 or e-mail her using the link provided on the right under Quick Links.
