School Meals and Snacks
The Richmond County School Board recognizes that students need adequate, nourishing food in order to learn, grow and maintain good health.
View the policy on school meals and snacks.
Richmond County Public Schools participate in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program which permits the school system to offer free and reduced priced meals to students who qualify. The School Nutrition Program (SNP) is a self-sustaining enterprise. Therefore, the program must rely on meal payments and federal/state reimbursements to fund the program.
Current Policy is being Revised
Free or Reduced Price Meals
Each school and/or central school nutrition office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party.
