Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

Division of Food, Nutrition and Wellness

The Division of Food, Nutrition and Wellness conducts, supervises and administers child nutrition and commodity food distribution programs that are carried out using state or federal funds. We provide outreach, guidance and training to child nutrition program sponsors, schools, school food service directors, parent and teacher organizations, and students about the benefit of fresh food produced in Florida.

Our mission is to ensure that every child in Florida has access to a healthy, nutritious meal each day; increase awareness and consumption of Florida's agricultural commodities; reduce food insecurity among Florida's most vulnerable populations; and encourage healthy lifestyles among Florida residents.
