Mission Statement

Danville Public Schools Child Nutrition Department will provide nutritious, appealing and balanced meals and excellent customer service to all students to encourage academic success and promote the development of healthy food habits for a lifetime.


The Danville Public Schools Child Nutrition Department participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, which are federally administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and by the Virginia Department of Education at the state level. Meals, food and beverages served at our schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet their health and nutrition needs. In our 12 schools, 86 dedicated food service professionals serve approximately 2,500 breakfasts and 5,000 lunches daily.

We are committed to promoting excellence in child nutrition!
