CCHS commits to operational compliance on all levels encompassing Federal, State and District regulations.
CCHS adheres to legislation regarding food and beverages on campus during the school day delineated in Bulletin 6292.1
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 required the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to establish nutrition standards for all foods and beverages sold and/or served to students outside the federal reimbursable meal program throughout the school day and on the school campus. Through this authorization, the USDA created national competitive food regulations, known as Smart Snacks in School (SSIS) Rule, which became effective on July 1, 2014.
Effective July 1, 2014, the USDA Smart Snacks in School Rule mandates that the School Food Authority (SFA) of any national school district ensure that foods and beverages authorized to be sold and/or served at District schools outside of the National School Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper Programs meet federal, state, local and school board nutritional standards and policies.
To be in compliance we do not accept outside food on our campus.
Students who bring lunch from home must bring it packed with them in the mornings in a lunch box or lunch bag.
Delivery of lunch by parents or any person during the school day is not permitted and will not be accepted.
Deliveries made to school by delivery persons of any type are not permitted and will be turned away.
If a student forgets their lunch they can contact the attendance office and the school cafeteria will provide them a school lunch.
Please make sure to fill out a lunch meal application to see if student qualifies for a free or reduced lunch.
