Ensuring children receive nutritional meals is key to their development. Our school follows the recommended guidelines and prepares meals and snacks in accordance with them.

Our program provides breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack each day. We are partnered with the Farm to Childcare initiative to offer fresh and local produce to our students. Bi-weekly menus are posted in each classroom and copies are sent home and can be obtained from the front desk by parents.

The Frankie Lemmon School and Developmental Center participates in the North Carolina Child and Adult Food Program (CACFP), which is a subsidiary program of the United States Department of Agriculture. All families are required to complete the forms for this program upon enrollment and each subsequent year. As a non-profit, participation in this program helps to subsidize costs to provide additional funding to support the school. We thank you for supporting the school by completing the requested forms. 

Children with food allergies, dietary restrictions, and/or feeding support needs are provided with Nutrition Care Plans as part of the enrollment process.
