The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federal child nutrition program that has nutrition guidelines for meals for children and provides reimbursement to sponsors or schools that operate NSLP. The reimbursement is from the federal government and helps offset the cost of providing meals to children. The NSLP has been a long-standing federal program, and next to SNAP, it is the most accessed federal nutrition program in the United States.
The West Virginia Department of Education is the State Agency that oversees the administration of NSLP in West Virginia.

All public schools in West Virginia currently participate in the National School Lunch Program.
