The Central Kitchen - Food Service Department is located on the campus of Weir High School. The county employs approximately 31 fulltime and half time cooks who work in the schools and central kitchen. They also have a Director of Nutrition, Secretary, two truck drivers and a billing clerk.
Centralized cooking is done at the kitchen and delivered by the two truck drivers. They serve, on a daily basis, an average of 900 breakfasts and 2,300 lunches.
Nine Hancock County schools are on a State P.O.S. (computerized Point-of-Service) program.
Nutrition Advisory Council at three schools: Oak Glen Middle, New Manchester and Oak Glen High School. Several students are picked at each school and the Director of Nutrition meets with them on an occasional basis. They do taste testing and offer suggestions for menus.
Kindergarten Taste Testing: Once a month, different foods (usually fresh fruit, vegetables or cheese) are sent to all kindergarten classes for a taste test. They also receive the history of food items and a picture to color. It is to help expose children, at a young age, to various fresh foods that they would not normally get.
Food for Needy Program: We have a contract with the Soup Kitchen in New Cumberland. They pick up their food at Oak Glen Middle School and Central Kitchen
Mission Nutrition: It is a marketing firm that the Food Service Department works with to increase student participation and promote the importance of healthy eating habits.
Centralized Billing / Centralized Free and Reduced Applications: Hancock County Schools Food Service Department has a centralized billing system. The department is in charge of mailing bills once a month to families who have children participating in the school lunch program. Payment can be mailed or dropped off at the billing office.
Free and reduced applications are available at each school and the Food Service Department. All completed applications are on file at the billing office.
Wellness Policy: The Hancock County District has adopted and implemented a mandatory Wellness Policy for the county. The Wellness Committee consists of staff, health care and community members. This Committee sets up objectives for the school year and oversees that these objectives are implemented.
As you can see, the Food Service Department does a lot more than feed the students of Hancock County. This department has adopted and developed many programs to involve and educate children on dietary and nutritional needs at a very young age.
