Welcome to New Castle County Vo-Tech Nutrition Services!


Welcome to New Castle County Vo Tech Nutrition!

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the
USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

Program Info

Nutrition Services is very excited to announce that thanks to a continued waiver from the USDA due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are once again able to offer free breakfast and lunch meals to all students regardless of income, meal benefit status, or the results of a meal benefit form. Meal benefit forms are still available but are not required for free meals at school. They can be found by clicking on the icon on the left side of the page.  Please contact the Nutrition Services Office at 302-995-8066 if you have any questions or need assistance.  Free/reduced meal benefit forms are also available in the school guidance office or in the school cafeteria.

Looking for meal distribution sites?

The Summer Food Service Program is a USDA program that provides healthy meals and snacks to eligible children when school is not in session.  Meals may be available free of charge for children 18 years of age or younger.  To find out information about where food is available and the times and days is it offered, families may call 211, or call 866-348-6479, or text the words “summer meals”  to 97779, or text the word "food" to 877-877, or for Spanish speakers, text the word “comida” to 877-877.
