Child Nutrition Services - Sue Ellen Codding, Director

Sue Ellen Codding  The McComb School District Child Nutrition Services (CNS) Program, an extension of the education program for the schools, is administered through the United States Department of Agriculture, the Mississippi Department of Education and the local School Board. Comprehensive regulations must be adhered to in order to receive federal funding. It is our goal to plan and serve attractive, healthy, nutritious meals within the limits of available funding, to promote nutrition education to our students, to contribute to the overall education process of the student, and to have sound operational procedures.

Food fuels our bodies. Children can be successful in the classroom if they are well nourished. We have been working hard to provide the healthiest meals available to help children succeed.

We are proud to report the program’s accomplishments over the last few years:
  • We eliminated all frying of food over five years ago
  • We offer whole grains three or more times a week
  • We have no added transfats
  • We have reduced the fat content of milk to 1% or less
  • We offer fresh fruit daily
  • We offer fresh vegetables daily
With a team of 34 dedicated employees, the Child Nutrition Department prepares and serves approximately 2500 lunches and 1500 school breakfasts daily, and we will continue to work hard for the benefit of our students, teachers, and staff.
