Murfreesboro City Schools Nutrition Mission Statement

Provide students with nutritious, wholesome meals that promote learning and achievement.

About Us

We currently operate 12 kitchens in Murfreesboro City Schools that serve breakfast, lunch, and afterschool snacks on a daily basis. Each kitchen is staffed with a Manager and Cafeteria Assistants.

All meals are prepared on site at each school and meet the Recommended Daily Allowance established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Murfreesboro City Schools participates in the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. These are federally assisted child feeding programs sponsored by the USDA that provide free or reduced meals to students whose families meet the criteria.

The School Nutrition Program operates fiscally independent of the District, paying for all its direct expenses and administrative costs. We are supported by revenue generated from sales made within our cafeterias as well as receiving federal and state funds based on our meal participation.

Murfreesboro City Schools Nutrition Department takes food safety very seriously. The staff has received Healthy Edge and Serving It Safe training as well as receiving ongoing HACCP training. The Rutherford County Health Department conducts two inspections yearly at each school. This past year we had five of our schools receive 100 on their inspections.
