Every Adair Co. student eats free all year

From Dayna Parnell, Assistant Food Service/Finance Director
Adair County Schools

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 2021-2022 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 that 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.

Even though this program is at no charge to you, 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:

Mornings can be really crazy...the alarm doesn't go off...the kids don't want to get up...there's no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes...or they're just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you.

Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.

Breakfast at your child's school is affordable because it is AT NO CHARGE to you! You cannot find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else!

Help your child start the day right with school breakfast!
