Child Nutrition (Food Service)
All students receive meals at no charge this school year, and meal service is back to pre-pandemic operations. Read more about meals in 2021-22.
Households eligible for Pandemic EBT cards can visit the state’s Department for Community Based Services webpage for updates and direct questions to (855) 306-8959. Please do not contact Fayette County Public Schools as the district has no further information aside from this background on the federal program.
Our district, through federally assisted meal programs, provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost, or free meals to students each school day. Children who are hungry find it hard to stay alert and participate in their classroom experiences, so we help close the readiness gap with a good breakfast before classes begin. We also plan school lunches that provide one-third of the recommended dietary allowances for school-age children. Menus include a daily variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, and whole-grain products. Also, we've made changes in food specifications and preparation to lower fat, sodium, and sugar content.
