The continuation of providing no-cost healthy, nutritious meals is due to the USDA extending its flexibility and reimbursement for school meals through June 30, 2022. The school district distributed approximately 2.4 million meals during the pandemic from March 2020 to August 2021.

The Child Nutrition Department is a self-supporting, enterprise business that is a division of the Caldwell County Schools and partially funded by the federal government (USDA) to support meal and milk service programs for students and children in Caldwell County.
