The USDA allowed schools to offer free meals to all students during the pandemic, but Congress did not extend this benefit for the 2022-2023 school year.
Families that are eligible for free or reduced-price meals must apply to receive them, and all other students must pay full price ($2.50) for their lunches. Breakfast is provided free of charge to all Greenville County students, regardless of their meal status.
The online application process for free and reduced-price meals is now live and can be accessed below.
While hard copies of meal benefit applications will be provided for parents when students return to school, the online applications are by far the most accurate and efficient method to apply for Free or Reduced Priced Meals.
On average, online applications are processed within 24-48 hours of completion. Parents are encouraged to take advantage of this simple process.
