Food & Nutrition Services: Meals for Students
The federal waiver and funding that allowed us to provide free meals for all students is ending on the last day of school. After Friday, May 27, NKC Schools will no longer be able to offer free meals for all.
Students already approved for free and reduced meals for 2021-22 will be automatically approved for free meals in summer school and into the first 30 days of next school year, 2022-23. A new application must be completed each year. Those who have not yet applied are encouraged to do so.
If you believe that you might qualify for free or reduced meals, fill out an application online as soon as possible:
- Families should complete the 2022-2023 application for the upcoming school year that begins in the fall. This application is available now: https://www.schoolnutritionandfitness.com/index.php?sid=0306152235285801&page=lunchapps
- More information and help for the application process is available here.
The free and reduced meals program offers many benefits beyond nutrition for participating families, including fee waivers, activity scholarships and school supplies. We encourage all families to take advantage of this option if eligible.
