School Nutrition generates its own revenue from sales of federally reimbursable meals as well as supplemental sales items.  This type of department is sometimes known as an "enterprise- fund" department, as it is managed as a self-sustaining enterprise.  School Nutrition personnel must offer meal selections which appeal to the student body.  The need for self-sufficiency (as well as federal and state law) provides reason to completely eliminate the sale of foods in competition with the SN program.  It would be appropriate to consider the Onslow County Schools cafeteria system as the largest restaurant chain in the county outside Camp Lejeune's gates.

All meals are prepared according to strict nutritional guidelines.  Increased emphasis on childhood obesity has resulted in some changes within the cafeteria system. Menus are routinely analyzed for nutritional content.  Methods of preparation and recipes have been updated to improve nutritional integrity of the program.  All supplemental sales items must meet nutritional guidelines and federal regulations.

Cafeteria Managers are not supervised by Principals or Assistant Principals.  Their performance appraisals are completed by the School Nutrition Supervisors, who are supervised by the School Nutrition Director.  Cafeteria Managers should function seamlessly with school-level administrators and should be considered a part of the individual school's team of employees.  It is appropriate for Cafeteria Managers to be included in staff meetings.

Cafeteria Managers should view administrators as their "very best customer" in all circumstances.  Managers have been advised to work with administrators on any special project the school may have (i.e. special meals or rewards for students).
