Families that took part in the no-cost summer meals program will be glad to learn the program has been extended through September 30, 2021. 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.

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.
