FREE AND REDUCED PRICE FOOD SERVICES

 

 

 

The Alleghany County school division provides free and reduced-price breakfasts, lunches and milk to students according to the terms of the National School Lunch Program, the National School Breakfast Program and the Special Milk Program.

 

School officials determine student eligibility based on guidelines established by federal law. Eligible students are provided nutritionally acceptable meals and milk free or at a reduced cost if state and federal resources for school food programs are available. The superintendent or designee establishes rules and procedures as needed to implement this policy.

 

The criteria for determining a student's eligibility and the procedures for securing free and reduced-price meals and milk is publicly announced at the beginning of each school year and provided to parents of all children in attendance at Alleghany County public schools.

 

The students who participate in the free or reduced-cost meals and milk programs are not overtly identified, distinguished or served differently than other students.
