• Child Nutrition Program Mission Statement
    The primary objective of the child nutrition program is to make available to every student a nutritious, well-prepared and attractive lunch every day. A complete breakfast is offered every morning in all schools. Serving times will vary according to each school's operational hours.

    All meals meet the standards as provided in federal, state and local laws and/or rules and regulations. Menu patterns are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and amounts of sugar, sodium and fat are controlled.

    Free and Reduced Meal Information and Application- for the school year 2021-2022.

    Application for 2022-2023 will open on July 1, 2022.

Free Meals for Students

  • ALL schools in the Madison County School System have been approved for a USDA waiver allowing us to provide breakfast and lunch meals for virtual, remote, and traditional learners at no cost to families.
    We are approved for the 2020-2021 year. Please continue to complete and submit applications for free and reduced meals as usual so correct statuses will be in place when the waiver ends. 

    --  This applies to ALL students(full price, reduced, and free) under 18 years old
    --  Meals may be picked up at any MCSS school.
    --  If you have children in multiple schools, you may pick up all meals at one school. You do not have to travel to each school.
