During the pandemic, Person County Schools (PCS) Nutrition Services were able to provide school meals at no cost to all enrolled students. Unfortunately, the USDA discontinued free meals effective June 30, 2022. As a result, PCS has reverted to the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. These programs provide nutritionally balanced breakfast and lunch meals at a low cost.
If your family would like to apply for meal benefits, you can complete an online application by visiting the site below or in the returning student registration portal. Paper applications will also be available on our website and will be sent home with students at the beginning of the school year.
All students in grades PreK - 5 will automatically receive meals at no cost due to guidelines under Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Individual meal applications DO NOT need to be completed for children in Grades PreK - 5.
