• Neptune Nutrition & Food Services

     The Board of Education recognizes the importance of both healthy eating and physical fitness. To that end the district’s Wellness Policy expresses the community’s commitment to providing the following:

    • Access to healthy school meals
    • Nutrition education
    • Opportunities for active physical activities during and after school
    • Community input to a comprehensive Wellness Policy

      All meals served in school cafeterias meet the extensive nutritional requirements established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the New Jersey Department of Agriculture’s Office of School Nutrition. These include: 

    • A variety of fruits and vegetables
    • Whole grain products
    • Reduced fats and salt
    • Serving sizes appropriate to the age group 

     Neptune also participates in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. This provides access to free or reduced price meals for families that meet federal income requirements. To access district’s official Wellness Policy, click on the following link:
