The Student Nutrition Program of the Belen Consolidated School District is once again offering hot, nutritious meals to students throughout the district. 

The Belen Consolidated Schools will once againg be participating in the UNIVERSAL Breakfast and Lunch Program called the Community Eligibility Provision!

If your child/children are enrolled at any one of the schools within the Belen Consolidated School District, they may participate in the breakfast and lunch program, receiving one breakfast and one lunch at no charge.

Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school.  By providing them breakfast and lunch at no charge, we are hoping to create a better learning environment for our students.

We must and will continue to follow the US Department of Agriculture's guidelines for healthy school meals.  

The Universal Meal Program cannot succeed without your support; please encourage you children to participate in our school meals programs.

The Fresh Fruits & Vegetables Program was awarded to each Elementary School, with the exception of the Family School.  With this Federal Grant money we will be able to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables to be used in conjunction with nutrition education in the classroom.

The "After School Snack" will continue at those schools choosing to have an after school program.
