KCS Students Eligible For Temporary Free Meals

Thanks to new flexibility from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, all students -- regardless of income status or school attended -- will temporarily be eligible for free breakfast and lunch, starting on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

This federally funded initiative will end no later than Dec. 31, 2020, and could end sooner depending on funding availability.

We will continue accepting free and reduced-price meal applications, given the temporary nature of this program, and students who previously used a PIN or scan card will continue to do so.

Students in virtual learning must still register for meal pickup from their base school. These students can register at http://knoxschools.org/mealsrequest.
