Child Nutrition Services 


Sue Ellen Codding, Director

The McComb School District Child Nutrition Department's mission is to provide the highest quality meals possible each and every day. With 6 kitchens  and over 30 dedicated employees, the Child Nutrition Department serves over 450,000 lunches and 308,000 breakfasts annually.
McComb School District Child Nutrition Department 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.
The McComb School District will be participating in the USDA’s National School Lunch Program “Seamless Summer Option (SSO)” for duration of the 2021-2022 school year. This program, while typically only available during the summer months, will continue to extend free meals to all scholars during the 2021-2022 school year. According to the USDA, this option maintains the nutrition standards of the standard school meal programs – including a strong emphasis on providing fruits and vegetables, milk, whole grains and sensible calorie levels. This option also provides flexibility for schools to further customize their meal service design to fit their local needs and enhance the scholars’ meal time experience. Nutrition is a main ‘ingredient ’ of learning and the McComb School District is proud to participate in this program to ensure the nutritional needs of every child are fulfilled; enabling our scholars to attain their greatest potential.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
