Free and Reduced Meals Program
Clarke County Public Schools participates in the USDA Free and Reduced Price Meals Program. Eligibility for participation in this program is generally based on household income. Once a student in Clarke County Public Schools is approved for Free or Reduced Price meal benefits, the benefit continues through the end of the school year. Students that were eligible in another school division for Free or Reduced Price meal benefits and transfer in during the school year must submit a new application. Anytime there is a change in employment status or wages, a new application may be filled out and submitted for approval. This is a year long process, not just at the beginning of the year. Application forms are available on this website or may be obtained from each school.

School Breakfast Program
Clarke County Public Schools participates in the School Breakfast Program (7 CFR §220) and the National School Lunch Program (7 CFR §210). Both programs are under the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the School Nutrition Program Office with the Virginia Department of Education which are responsible for overseeing the programs in Virginia public schools.
The dietary guidelines that our School Nutrition Program is required to follow are set by the USDA. The lunch program is planned to meet one-third of the recommended dietary allowance for the day. Each lunch includes milk, bread, protein rich foods, fruits and/or vegetables. The breakfast program is offered because students who eat breakfast are more alert, less fatigued, and have a better chance of doing well in school. Each breakfast contains milk, one serving of vegetable/fruit or juice, and two servings of either bread or meat.
