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.

P-EBT Information for NCCVT Families Eligible for Benefits

Division of Social Services (DSS) provided P-EBT benefits to households with eligible students last year and over the summer during the COVID19 pandemic. The P-EBT program for the 2021-2022 School Year has not yet been approved in Delaware. Students that have been approved for free or reduced meals, by completing a meal benefit form or being approved by direct certification, may be eligible this school year during certain situations once the Division of Social Services (DSS) receives approval. While all students have access to free breakfast and lunch at school regardless of the income eligibility for SY2021-2021 due to a waiver in place from USDA, this does not automatically qualify all students for the P-EBT benefits. Families must be approved for free or reduced meal benefits through the Meal Benefit Form or Direct Certification to be eligible for P-EBT. If you have questions about this program you can call the Division of Social Services Customer Service Line at 1-866-843-7212. Meal Benefit Forms can be found at the link on the top left of this page, in the cafeteria, or the guidance office at school. They can be completed and returned to the cafeteria, the guidance office, emailed to: [email protected], or mailed to Nutrition Services, 1417 Newport RD Wilmington, DE 19804.
