School Nutrition


The School Nutrition Department of Watauga County Schools is responsible for all aspects of food service in our schools. This includes purchasing of food, drinks, supplies and equipment; preparing meals and snacks; and maintenance of billing and payment information. Our schools comply with all Federal and State health and safety standards and are subject to regular inspections by the Health Department.

School Nutrition believes that providing healthy food choices and efficient customer service will enrich lives and foster success for all our students. Each Watauga County School offers school breakfast and lunch each day of the school year. 

Our School Nutrition Director is Monica Bolick.

Our meal payments platform, TITAN Family Portal, has been upgraded to LINQ Connect. You’ll enjoy a fresh look and new features, designed just for you. Download the new LINQ Connect app in the Google Play Store available now and the Apple Store that will be available soon or visit to manage all your payments in one convenient location.

There’s no need to change your username or password. It all transfers to the new platform for you.

Within the LINQ Connect portal, you can set up one-time or recurring payments for your student’s meals, view previous transactions, set spending limits, transfer funds between students, set low-balance notifications, and more. It’s an easy way to manage meal payments without the hassle of sending cash.

The School Nutrition Department utilizes a software system to make online payments for your student's meals and to apply for free and reduced meals. Details on the software are outlined on the website.
