Free Meals to all Forsyth County students
  • Free meals for all children in Forsyth County

    The United States Department of Agriculture, the administrative agency of the School Nutrition Program, has approved a waiver which will allow schools to provide free meals to all students in Forsyth County. This waiver will last through our last school day in December or until federal funds expire. Below are details for on-campus learners and virtual learners.

    UPDATE: As of May 27, 2021 the free meals for all children program will end. At this time we expect to go back to operations as they were pre-pandemic

  • On-Campus Students

    All students currently attending classes on campus can enjoy a free breakfast and lunch at school starting on Wednesday, September 16th. Families do not need to do anything to take advantage of this waiver. All students will receive meals at no cost through December 22nd or until federal funds expire.

    A lunch meal consists of:

    • Entrée choice
    • Fruit
    • Vegetable
    • Choice of milk

    A breakfast meal consists of:

    • Entrée choice
    • Fruit or vegetable
    • Choice of milk

    Snacks, bottled water, drinks and additional meal components may be purchased at regular a la carte prices.

  • Families that qualify for meal benefits should still complete free and reduced priced meal applications to avoid a lapse in meal benefits once the waiver has ended. Meal applications are not required to receive free meals during the time the waiver is active. If you have questions about free and reduced priced meal applications please contact Sandra McKinzie at
