The Sumter County Child Nutrition Program has a passion for promoting healthy lifestyles grounded in excellent nutrition. We believe that this message can effectively be spread by changing the habits and choices of the school-age demographic. It is the goal of our program to offer high quality, nutritious meals to each child, each day, with excellence.

What does this mean for you and your children attending the schools of Sumter County Board of Education?
Great news for you and your household! All enrolled students of Sumter County Board of Education are eligible to receive a healthy, reimbursable breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your students each day of the 2014-2015 school year.
