Fort Smith Public School meals provide a healthy and affordable way to make sure your child gets the nutrients that are essential for success in school. 

Studies have shown that kids who eat school meals get more calcium, protein, and vitamins, and less fat and sugar than their classmates who do not eat school meals.
