  • Meals for Students

    All parents are encouraged to complete the ONLINE Free and Reduced Application. Click here. Meals will be free to all students again this school year. Families may also be entitled to benefits offered through other organizations such as the P-EBT. Apply today and don't miss out on any beneficial resources for your children.

    The continuation of providing no-cost healthy, nutritious meals is due to the USDA extending its flexibility and reimbursement for school meals through June 30, 2022. The school district distributed approximately 2.4 million meals during the pandemic from March 2020 to August 2021.

    The Child Nutrition Department is a self-supporting, enterprise business that is a division of the Caldwell County Schools and partially funded by the federal government (USDA) to support meal and milk service programs for students and children in Caldwell County.
