Food for Thought Breakfast Program
Food for Thought provides free breakfast to students at all three Manning schools every Tuesday and Thursday morning beginning in October. Breakfast is also provided every morning at our school during final exams. At times, our school may supplement the Food for Thought program by serving breakfast on additional mornings.
Food for Thought is a community organization that relies on volunteers to deliver the program in each school. They also rely heavily on donations and community fundraising to keep the program going. Anyone who would like to help in any way is encouraged to contact our school office.
Hot Lunch Program
Due to COVID-19 our weekly paid Hot Lunch Program has been replaced with periodic free hot lunch days for all students thanks to special nutrition funding programs currently in place.
School Lunch Pantry
Our school keeps a supply of non-perishable lunch supplies on hand for students who a need lunch or extra nutrition throughout the day. Due to COVID-19 self-serve options are not possible, however students can ask a staff member for assistance.
