County schools nutrition program adapts to changes

The Child Nutrition Program of Franklin County Schools will experience changes in its breakfast and lunch programs beginning in the 2019-20 school year.

For the previous four years, FCS has operated under the Community Eligibility Provision, but the system no longer qualifies for this grant. Instead, FCS will apply for Provision 2. Under Provision 2, all students will continue to receive free breakfast and lunch.

To qualify for Provision 2, all households must submit Free/Reduced applications. These applications will be available July 1 and mailed to each household that has a student enrolled in any of the six county schools. A self-addressed, stamped envelope will be included so families can send the application back as soon as possible. FCS is requesting these applications be turned in by July 26.

Also, to ensure all students receive an application, a form will be sent home requesting student addresses. FCS asks that all corrections/confirmations be returned to the school by May 23.
