Director of School Nutrition Services is Mr. Carey Athey.

School Nutrition in Dinwiddie County Public Schools has a staff of 45 that prepares and serves approximately 630,000 meals annually in seven schools. School Nutrition Services is unique in the school system because they are self-supporting; they pay for all direct costs, payroll and administrative expenses. About 35% of School Nutrition’s income comes from the sale of meals and A la Carte items. The remaining amount comes from state and federal reimbursements for meals served.

Our mission is to provide the best food service possible to students, staff and community by serving nutritious, healthy and appealing food while maintaining a healthy, safe environment, good customer service and financial integrity.
