Nutritious meals are essential to student productivity. All Metro schools offer breakfast and lunch to every student every school day. We believe no student should be denied nutritious meals and offer both temporary and long-term solutions for students unable to pay for their meals.
For students and families unable to regularly meet the cost, we offer free and reduced priced meals. For students who occasionally may forget their lunch money, we allow meals to be charged with the expectation that the debt will be paid promptly.
This expectation is not always met, leaving uncollected debts in our cafeterias – something prohibited by Federal regulations. Because of this, we will no longer allow high school students to charge meals in school cafeterias, effective February 20, 2012.
Free and reduced price meals are still available for all families who qualify.
