FREE Summer Meals at Wells Elementary-LUNCH is Ready!
  • FREE Summer Meals at Wells Elementary JUNE 4-JULY 27
    "Meals are in when school is out" because summer is the time of year when a child is most at risk of going hungry or missing meals. This is what we refer to as food insecure and why the Jones County School Nutrition Program, Jones Co. Schools Transportation Department and the Jones Co. Parks and Recreation Department has teamed up to offer free lunch meals to kids, Monday - Thursday, starting June 4- July 27, at Wells Elementary School.


    It is our goal to ensure that children who rely on the school lunch program continue to have access to nutritious meals when the school year ends. This is an open meal site and free lunch meals will be available to any child, ages 1-18, from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM. Meals must be consumed on site to ensure proper planning and accurate daily meal counts. School-age students in the Wells Elementary and Clifton Ridge school zones may be picked up by school bus at several bus stops, carried to Wells Elementary and returned to their bus stops, according to the schedule provided below.

School Wellness Program and Policy
  • Local School Wellness Policy
    The Jones County Board of Education is committed to providing a school environment that enhances learning and development of lifelong wellness practices, including but limited to fostering good eating habits to maintain healthy weight management for a life time.

    A healthy school environment goes beyond school meals in the cafeteria. A healthy lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight requires a combination of healthy food choices and appropriate amount of physical activity.  All foods made available on school campuses should offer children nutritious choices and physical activity should be incorporated into the school day as often as possible. The healthy, physically active child is more likely to be academically successfu
