Breakfast will be served from 7:30 to 8 a.m. at all three locations. Andalusia Elementary School will have lunch from 11 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday until Thursday, June 22. Andalusia High School will have lunch from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday until Thursday, June 29. Lunch will be served at the ACS Board of Education from noon to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday until June 30.

Shan Burkhardt currently serves as the director of the ACS Child Nutrition Program.

Andalusia City Schools Child Nutrition Program (CNP) strives to provide students with the best possible nutrients each day for breakfast and lunch under the federal guidelines. Schools all across America have been improving school meals and have worked to educate students with regard to making healthy choices at school and at home. All food at ACS is either baked or steamed and never fried.

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 requires the USDA to develop nutrition standards for “competitive foods” or items sold in vending machines, snack bars, and a la carte items in competition to the reimbursable school meal. In addition, USDA guidelines also require that all schools serve more fruits and vegetables with students taking at least 1/2 cup serving of a fruit/vegetable per reimbursable meal.
