At Gulf Shores City Schools, our goal is to serve nutritious, well-balanced meals that appeal to students and the school community. We see our students, faculty and other guests as valued customers and we believe that we have the responsibility to foster healthy eating habits while providing a safe and clean environment for meals. Breakfast and lunch are available at all three of our schools.
Gulf Shores City Schools also offers free/reduced meals to qualifying students. Information is available through the Child Nutrition Department.
If your child requires a special diet due to a medical condition or any allergies, please contact the Child Nutrition Department.
