Students, Parents,Teachers and Administration of Corning Union High School District,
The Nutrition Services Department here at Corning Union High School District is committed to providing healthy school meals and an after school meal to all students. The team of dedicated food and nutrition professionals support student academic success and promotes healthful eating habits that lead to lifelong positive nutrition practices.
School meals are served to students under the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program and follow the nutrition guidelines prescribed by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The law was designed to reduce the incidence of childhood obesity by providing healthier choices to students.
- Increased produce options, ensuring students receive both fruits & vegetables every day of the week
- Portion size guidelines, calorie limits and sodium limits based on the age of children served
- Increased emphasis on whole grain products
- Limits on the types of milk served, with an emphasis on low fat (1%) and non-fat flavored milk
Key things you need to know about leading a healthy lifestyle are:
- Eat a healthy diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain products
- Control portion sizes and never “Supersize”
- Get active for at least 60 minutes, five times a week for ages 6-18
Well-nourished students have higher test scores, increased school attendance, improved concentration, and improved classroom behavior. Students, who are physically fit, sleep better and are better able to handle the physical and emotional challenges that they encounter during the day.
Corning Union High School District is proud to participate in CEP. Breakfast and Lunch is offered to all students at no charge! We also participate in CACFP for supper and it is FREE to all students as well.
Meals, foods, and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Corning Union High School will also serve a variety of USDA Approved Snacks and Drinks for purchase at our Snack bar in the Cardinal Cafe.

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of our students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness committee that includes teachers, administrators, the school psychologist, the food service supervisor, students and the district health aide. Our policy looks at food served on campus, physical education and nutrition education as well as mental health awareness.
