ACPS Lunch Prices Increase For The FY18 School Year

In compliance with Public Law 111-296, Section 205 of the Federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, the Amelia County School Board, at its April 3, 2017 meeting, approved to increase Full Price Lunch student costs by $.10. For the FY18 school year, an elementary student may buy lunch for $2.45 and a middle school and high school student may buy lunch for $2.55. Adult ala carte meals will increase by $.25 to $3.50. Breakfast meal costs will remain the same at $1.10 for all three schools.

We are required to incrementally increase lunch prices until we meet the federal reimbursement rate which is currently $2.86.

 â€‹Children need healthy meals to learn. Amelia County Public Schools offers healthy meals every school day. Student breakfast costs $ $1.10 and elementary lunch costs are $2.45 and middle and high school lunch costs are $2.55. Your children may qualify for free or reduced price breakfast and lunch meals. Reduced price breakfast costs $.30 and reduced price lunch costs $.40. Adult meals remain $3.50. All meals served must meet standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. However, if a student has been determined by a doctor to be disabled and the disability prevents the student from eating the regular school meal, the school will make substitutions prescribed by the doctor. If a substitution is prescribed, there will be no extra charge for the meal. If your student needs substitutions because of a disability, please contact us for further information.

   Children who are members of households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) are eligible for free meals regardless of income. Foster children who are the legal responsibility of a welfare agency or court may also be eligible for benefits regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside. Eligibility for the foster child is based on the child's personal use income. Children who are members of households participating in WIC may also be eligible for free or reduced-price meals based on the household’s income. If your total household income is at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, your child(ren) may get free meals or your child(ren) may get reduced price meals for .30 cents for breakfast, .40 cents for lunch. Your child(ren)’s application from last school year is only good for the first few days of this school year. YOU MUST SEND IN A NEW FAMILY APPLICATION FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR.
