National waiver means free meals available for everyone 18 & younger

This fall, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that school districts may go back to using the national waiver for expanded meal service for children and families. Therefore:   

  • Free meals are available for anyone age 18 and younger.
  • Children do not have to be enrolled in Fayette County Public Schools.
  • Children do not have to be present for meals pick-up. 

Meals are available at school and community pick-up locations between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Mondays (two breakfasts and two lunches) and Wednesdays (three breakfasts and three lunches). The food bags can be picked up at any site regardless of student enrollment.  

For more about food service in FCPS, please visit the Child Nutrition webpages.
