For the past two school years, federal funding allowed us to provide free meals for all students due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding has ended, requiring us to return to charging students for meals. We ask that students not bring cash with them through the lunch line each day. Instead, you may deposit funds on your student’s meal account, and the cost of their meals each day will be deducted from this balance. We ask that parents complete a pre-order form weekly for school lunch. Knowing just how much we need to make before we order or prep something helps us to reduce the amount of waste we generate.
Per federal guidelines, we are accepting applications for free or reduced price meals throughout the school year. The quickest and easiest method to apply for these benefits is via the Atlanta Public Schools online free and reduced meal application for 2022-2023.
