Child Nutrition

Calvert County Public Schools participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs and offers nutritious meals every school day. Both breakfast and lunch service are available at all school locations. School meals offer a variety of food choices and meet nutrition standards established by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act and the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Free and/or Reduced Price Meal Eligibility (FARMs)

Some students may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Eligibility is typically determined by household size and income. Household Meal Benefit Applications are sent home with each student at the beginning of the school year and are available on the school system website. Parents need only submit one application per household if they believe their children qualify for free or reduced-price meals.

Please feel free to submit a Free and Reduced Meal Benefit Application any time during the year!

Please note:  Applications will not be accepted for an upcoming school year until July 1. Do not complete an application for an upcoming school year before July 1.
