Welcome to Hammond Food & Nutrition Services!
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Food & Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
***NEW THIS YEAR***
Starting this school year (2018-2019) ALL students will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost and therefore no meal benefit application needs to be submitted. HOWEVER - All SCH students must pay textbook rental fees unless you have been notified in writing that your child has been approved for textbook assistance for the current school year (known as Direct Certification).
Textbook Assistance Applications:
Applications for Textbook Assistance must be submitted each school year for those who wish to see if they qualify for textbook assistance. You can fill out a paper application at your student's school or at the SCH Administration Building - or you can fill out an online application here: (https://www.myschoolapps.com/Home/DistrictRedirect/HAMMONDCITY_IN?langid=1)
For more information regarding textbook applications, please contact Kanisha Jenkins at 219-933-2400 Ext. 1068.
