Introduction
 
All schools in the Exeter Township School District serve nutritious meals each school day. A well-balanced diet affects not only the health of the student, but his/her academic progress as well. The Food Service Department follows the National School Programs Regulations and complies with Federal Nutrition Standards under the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. The school meal program is under the supervision of the US Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service. In the operation of the Food Service program, no child will be discriminated against because of race, gender, color, national origin, age or disability.

In the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, the U.S. Congress established a requirement that all school districts develop and implement wellness policies that address nutrition and physical activity by July 1, 2006.

The Exeter Township School District recognizes that student wellness and proper nutrition are related to student's physical well-being, growth, development, and readiness to learn. The District is committed to providing a school environment that promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition education and physical activity as part of the total learning experience.

Administrative guidelines are established for physical activity and foods offered, which include ala carte foods. Snacks, beverages, vending food and beverage, fund raisers, classroom parties/holiday celebrations/snacks and also student rewards and school stores.
