USDA Information

The Nutrition Staff of WCV want to make sure every meal served within our schools is safe and nutritious. Because WCV does not provide refrigeration for meals brought from home, we want to make sure you have all the information you may need to keep meals sent from home safe and healthy. The following links have been provided by the USDA.
