CTA offers free breakfast, lunch and snack program to all the students through The National School Lunch Program (OSSE) which is a federally assisted meal program. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. The National School Lunch Program offers to help schools serve snacks to children in afterschool activities aimed at promoting the health and well-being of children and youth in our communities.

The school offers fresh fruits every afternoon mostly with FFVP grant from OSSE.
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to students in participating elementary schools during the school day. The goal of the FFVP is to improve children’s overall diet and create healthier eating habits to impact their present and future health. The FFVP will help schools create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices; expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience; and increasing children’s fruit and vegetable consumption.

FFVP can be an important tool in our efforts to combat childhood obesity. The Program has been successful in introducing school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have the opportunity to sample.
The various partnerships that FNS and state agencies have developed in the public and private sectors, as well as the dedicated work of school administrators, have contributed to the overall success and acceptance of the program. FFVP is consistent with and supports the Institute of Medicine’s recommendations to provide healthier snack choices in schools.
