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 school 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 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.
