Parents and Families of Fayette County Schools,

As you are aware, schools have been able to offer breakfast and lunch at no charge to students during the last two school years. This was made possible thanks to the generous support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture reimbursing schools for meals served to students, regardless of their income.

For the school year 2022-2023, Fayette County Public Schools Nutrition Department is requesting all families to complete and submit a Free and Reduced Meal Application by August 4th, 2022 if you believe your student(s) are eligible. The application can be completed online by visiting www.myschoolapps.com.

For information about Fayette County’s School Nutrition Program, please contact Joshua Mosley, Free and Reduced Lead Manager, at schoolmeals@fcboe.org or by calling 770-460-3535 ext.1061.

The entire staff at Fayette County Public Schools is looking forward to supporting your child in the coming school year.
