• SY 09-10 NHPS School Food awarded ARRA Equipment Grant in the amount of $30,699.00. This money was used to purchase automated food distribution centers to serve reimbursesable meals to our students. These machines are tied into our state of the art computer system and allow students to be served a reimbursesable meal without having to wait in line. The machines also operate as a reversible ATM machine which will allow students to add money to their account and help us move to a cash-less system.
