Here in Trousdale County, our students are enjoying healthy new choices in their cafeterias.

Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, all three of Trousdale County Schools are participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the USDA’s Food Service Program. This means that all students have access to a free Breakfast and Lunch daily. We are excited to offer this program because we know that students who have nutritious meals are better able to learn and perform better on their assignments.


Trousdale County is serving school meals that meet tough new federal nutrition standards, ensuring that meals are healthy, well-balanced, and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school.

School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet additional standards requiring:
  • Age-appropriate calorie limits
  • Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
  • A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
  • Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
  • More whole grains
  • Less sodium               

We are always working to offer students healthier and tastier choices.
Schotrayol meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families.
Trousdale County participates in the Offer vs. Serve (OVS) meal service program. OVS is a concept that applies to menu planning and the determination of reimbursable meals for grades K-12 in the Breakfast, Lunch, and Summer programs of the National School Lunch Program. OVS allows students to decline a certain number of food components (lunch) or food items (breakfast) in the meal and select the foods they prefer to eat.

School Wellness Policy Information

Every school system in the nation is mandated to have a School Wellness Policy.

Trousdale County Schools is committed to the optimal development of every student. The District believes that for students to have the opportunity to achieve personal, academic, developmental and social success, we need to create positive, safe and health-promoting learning environments at every level, in every setting, throughout the school year. We also recognize the value of proper nutrition, physical activity, and other health conscious practices and the impact that such practices have on student academic achievement, health, and well-being. In order to provide an environment conducive to overall student wellness, this policy and its associated guidelines were developed to show how our school system plans to implement a healthy place for our students to learn.


The Student Wellness Policy, the School Wellness Guidelines, and the Wellness Policy Assessment can be viewed below.
