USDA Update regarding meal service - BCS meal service update from USDA

We want to share some important information about our meal service procedure as students return for in-person instruction on an A day/B day rotation starting on Sept. 28. Meal service is available to all BCS students including those participating in 100% remote instruction and the BCS Virtual Academy.

Families that took part in the no-cost summer meals program will be glad to learn the program has been extended through Dec. 31, 2020. Families are still asked to fill out a Fall 2020 Free/Reduced Meal Application as soon as possible. You can also get a paper copy from your school or the School Nutrition Department.

View our curbside meal distribution locations or check out our Meal Service FAQ below. If you qualify for the free/reduced lunch program, you may pick up a meal at no cost.

Curbside pick-up times are 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students may pick up one breakfast and one lunch for each day.  

For more information regarding Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications please contact School Nutrition office at 828-255-5927 or by e-mail at Please see below for more important information about the federal free and reduced lunch program.

The carryover period for free and reduced meals for the 2020-2021 school year is Monday, September 28th. The carryover period is the amount of time students are allowed by USDA to remain on the prior year's meal status. In order to qualify for free or reduced meals, parents must complete a new free and reduced meal application every school year.

Students attending one of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) schools, Emma, Johnston, Woodfin and Candler are not required to complete free and reduced meal applications and will automatically receive free meals based on the school’s participation in that USDA program.

School meals will be available for all students in all school-opening scenarios, including the 100% Remote Learners and for those that register for the Virtual Academy.
