Children need healthy meals to learn. Charlton County Schools offer healthy meals every school day to your child(ren). Our food service receives support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs. We receive federal reimbursement for every student meal served based on additional money for meals served to children from households with income at or below the amounts on the Income Chart.
It will be necessary that households complete the free/reduced application available at all schools to determine if children are eligible to receive meals at a reduced or free rate for lunch.
