What's going on in the Stateside cafeteria?

  • Child Nutrition offers healthy meals every school day. Breakfast costs $1.25; lunch costs $2.25. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Reduced price is available at no charge for breakfast and $.40 for lunch.

    If your child was free or reduced last year, it is not an automatic approval this year. Your child’s application is only good for that school year and for the first few days of this school year. You must send in a new application unless the Child Nutrition office notified you in writing that your child is eligible for the new school year. Use one Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application for all students in your household. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information. Return the completed application to: Child Nutrition Department, P. O. Box 99, Jacksonville, NC 28541 or bring it into our office at 200 Broadhurst Rd, Jacksonville, NC 28541. Our telephone number is (910) 478-3480.

    Parents are responsible for all charges accrued until the date the application is approved.  

    Students approved for free or reduced priced meals must choose a FULL meal. Individual items and milk selections result in a la carte pricing. A la carte items are not available for charging.
