Welcome to Columbia Magazine  

Adair County School District lunches will be free this year

Attention: Parents & Students Itís FREE! FREE!

From Dayna Feese, Assistant Food Service Director
Adair County School District, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY

Adair County Food Service Program is participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) that allows ALL STUDENTS to receive FREE breakfast and FREE lunch for the 2014-2015 school year. Your child's participation in breakfast and lunch will be essential to continue to offer all school meals free for our children! All students must take the required food components to make a reimbursable meal or they will have to pay for each item and will not qualify for a free meal.

Your child may continue to PURCHASE extra food items or a la carte items at a set price. Board Policy states:

Students are NOT ALLOWED TO CHARGE EXTRA FOOD ITEMS! So please inform your child of this policy as cashiers will not allow charging of any items. NO EXCEPTIONS!!

For your convenience use MY SCHOOL BUCKS to deposit money into your child's lunch/breakfast account and erase the agony of lost money for these items.

For more information regarding school nutrition contact: Carol Roy, Food Service Director 270/384-2476

Even though this PROGRAM is FREE in order to CONTINUE offering free meals & receive other monies for our students it is essential TO COMPLETE AND RETURN YOUR CHILD'S Household & Income Form ASAP to your child's school. We certainly want to continue to offer this amazing service EVERY year! YOUR information will be kept confidential.

For more information regarding Household Income Form contact: Steve Turner, FRAM Coordinator 270-384-2476
