Lee County Public Schools Food Service is one of 96,000 school districts participating in the National School Lunch Program (established in 1946) and one of 72,000 districts participating in the School Breakfast Program (established in 1966). It is one of many self -supporting programs throughout the nation, receiving no funding through the district's general fund.
The NSLP and NSBP are federally assisted meal programs providing nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free meals to students each school day. School districts that choose to take part in the program receive cash subsidies and donated commodities from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for each student meal they serve.
Lee County Schools are announcing the service of all meals to students under the National School Lunch / School Breakfast Programs for the 2016-2017 school year.
All students will be served Lunch and Breakfast at no charge at the following sites:
Lee County Middle High School
Lee County Elementary School
We are renewing our commitment to making sure that all of our students are fully prepared for academic success. As we all recognize that hungry children cannot learn, the first step in ensuring that all students begin the school day with a nutritious breakfast.
The School Breakfast Program is FREE to all students every weekday morning at all Lee County Schools. No advance registration is necessary; your child can participate every day. These supervised meals meet all government nutritional guidelines, and our staff is working to provide students with a variety of choices.
School Breakfast is an ideal solution especially on mornings when kids are running late or parents have early commitments. Whatever the reason, please take advantage of breakfast at school. Thank you for helping us to make sure that all of our students start the school day alert, well fed, and ready to learn.
