Meals for Students

  • Beginning August 24 and continuing through the entire 2020-2021 school year, all students throughout the district will have access to free breakfast and lunch.

2020-2021 School Year

  • Immediately upon facing building closures due to the spread of the coronavirus, NKC Schools implemented a comprehensive plan for families to access food. Planning for any possible scenario, multiple distribution phases were outlined to continue providing this much-needed resource. As students return to the classroom and virtual studies on Tuesday, September 8, NKC Schools has determined that it is the right time to shift to Phase 1 of our Re-Entry Plan. The majority of food distribution sites will close on Thursday, September 3, as those staff and resources will now be dedicated to offering school meals to students returning to the classroom. District buses will no longer be used to deliver meals, as those staff and resources will be dedicated to transporting students to and from school buildings.

    NKC Schools will continue to provide free meals for all learners through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

    Families should still apply for the free and reduced price meal program to ensure discounts on for other programs, including testing. A new free and reduced price meals application must be completed each year. Apply for free or reduced price meals here: More information is available here.

    NKC Schools remains steadfast in our resolve to provide food to those in need. Starting on Tuesday, September 8th, the following sites are designated as “grab-n-go” food pick up locations for students enrolled in any of NKC Schools' virtual learning options, including middle school and high school students who are learning virtually three days per week. Meal pick up is from Monday through Friday, between 10 a.m.–1 p.m.
