NCC Vo-Tech Nutrition Services will continue to offer curbside meals-to-go at Delcastle, Hodgson, Howard, and St. Georges, but beginning June 14 the distribution days will be Mondays and Thursdays from 7:00 AM to 1:30 PM.

These meals, which include breakfasts and lunches for multiple days, are available to anyone 18 years or younger and are free of charge.

For additional information, please see below:

WHEN: Mondays and Thursdays between the hours of 7:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. only.

WHAT: Whether you pick up in the morning or at mid-day, each student meal package will include 3 complete breakfasts and 3 complete lunches on Mondays, and 4 breakfasts and 4 lunches on Thursdays. Meals will include storage and reheating instructions. Most meals will require refrigeration.

WHERE: Delcastle, Hodgson, Howard, St. Georges – follow signs in the school parking lot.

COST: Meals are free of charge to all.

The USDA Summer Food Service Program has been extended, due to COVID-19.  Students may go to any site that distributes meals, not just their specific school or a school in their specific school district.  Students who have received meals this year at other locations may continue to do so or may go to any NCC Vo-Tech high school. If families have children in the household who are not students in NCCVT, they still will be served at any of our high school distribution sites.

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.

Nutrition Services is very excited to announce that all students will receive free breakfast in the New Castle County Vocational Technical School District. Students that are eligible for reduced price meals will also continue to receive lunch at no cost.  Meal benefit forms 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 ask any cashier.
