2020-21 School Lunch Information

School meals will be available for all students including those students who register for the K-12 HCS Virtual Program. 

Households are required to fill out a new application each school year. Students that were on free or reduced meals last school year are granted a carry-over period by USDA to remain on the prior year's meal status until the new application is submitted. That prior year status will expire on October 19, 2020, and the student's meal status will revert to full paying unless a new application is submitted and approved based on USDA eligibility guidelines. Students attending one of our Community Eligibility (CEP) schools are not required to complete a meal application and will automatically receive free meals based on the school's participation in that USDA program.

For more information regarding the Free & Reduced Meal Application process or school meals, please visit HCS Nutrition Services or contact HCS Nutrition Services at (843) 488-6925.
