Kids Eat FREE this Summer!

Even though school is out for summer, kids can still eat for free in the Hickman Mills C-1 School District, June 13 - 28th!  Want one less meal to worry about preparing this summer?  Let us do the cooking!  Are your kids staying with Grandma or one of your neighbors this summer? Tell them to bring the kids to school to eat.  We love it when kids come visit us during the summer months... and we love to feed them healthy foods!

Important to note:  Children do not have to be enrolled in summer school to enjoy a nutritious meal with us at school.

All children in the community age 18 years or younger may join us this summer for breakfast, lunch and even supper free of charge.  Check out the schedule on our WHAT'S NEW PAGE to find out when Summer Open Meal Times are planned at a site near you!




Healthy Kids - Healthy Community


We are passionate school nutrition professionals empowering a diverse and historic community to build healthy minds, healthy bodies and healthy relationships through safe food and nutrition experiences.      

Our BELIEFS - Guiding Us Forward

  • We believe in exceptional customer service.
  • We believe healthy foods fuel the body and the brain.
  • We believe a hungry child cannot learn to the best of his or her ability; therefore, school meals directly support learning. Healthy_Community/healthy_community_03.jpg

Nutrition & Learning

At Hickman Mills, we know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

The 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.

The primary goal of the Food & Nutrition Services Department is to ensure no child goes hungry. Achievement of this goal allows us to support the district goal of educating all students to become lifelong learners… one meal at a time.
