The Navy Exchange Service Command School Meal Program operates the DoD Student Meal Program (SMP) in 10 OCONUS locations: Naples, Sigonella, Rota, Bahrain, Yokosuka, Atsugi, Ikego, Sasebo, Hario and Guantanamo Bay. The SMP offers meals, on a break-even basis, in accordance with USDA nutrition standards. Whole grains, lean proteins, fresh fruits and vegetables, and low-fat milk are offered on a daily basis. The mission of the NEX Student Meal Program is to provide delicious and nutritious meals to students.
