2019-20 school meal programs: What Duval County parents need to know
DCPS releases information about free and reduced-price meals for 2019-20
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Duval County Public Schools on Wednesday released information about its 2019-20 school meal programs before students head back to class.
The application for free or reduced-price meals will be available after Thursday, the school district said. Household size and income will be used to determine eligibility.
DCPS identified the 126 schools that provide free lunch and breakfast under the National School Lunch Program.
The district released a separate list of schools taking part in the Universal Free Breakfast Program. The district noted the schools in this program are not part of the National School Lunch Program. Between both programs, according to DCPS, all district schools provide free breakfast.
The district also named the schools where meals and snacks will be provided for free in participating after-school programs.
DCPS said parents and guardians can also find information on its website.
