Lincoln County School District
Free Breakfast and Lunch Opportunity
September 7, 2020
Lincoln County School District is very excited to announce that beginning September 8, 2020, we’ll be able to offer free breakfast and lunch to ALL of our students. So, regardless of your child’s current cafeteria plan, free, reduced, or full price, ALL students will eat for free! This is made possible through funding from USDA and will be available to our students until December 31, 2020. With the exception of West Lincoln Attendance center, our cafeteria’s will be considered closed sites meaning that only enrolled students in K through 12th grade will be able to participate. However, West Lincoln Attendance Center is considered an open site, giving that location the opportunity to offer free grab and go breakfast and/or lunch to anyone under the age 18. Please contact your school office or Jeremy Berry, Director of Child Nutrition, at 601-833-0490 if you have any questions. If you have not already done so, be sure to complete the free/reduced lunch application for the 2020-2021 school year so we can be eligible for other opportunities such as this in the future.
