Approximately 29 percent of students in FCPS qualify for free and reduced-price meals. That’s more than 54,000 students who usually have access to breakfast and lunch at school each day.
Fairfax County Public Schools will participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) 2019 summer food service program for children, a program established to ensure that students who qualify for free and reduced-price meals during the school year continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals that meet federal nutrition guidelines will be provided to children at approved sites throughout Fairfax County.
Meals will be provided to all children without charge on a first-come, first-served basis. There will not be meal service on July 4 or 5.
