Sylacauga City Schools announces free and reduced-price meal plan for 2022-23 school year


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga City School (SCS) system has announced its free breakfast and lunch meal plan for students that will go into effect for the 2022-23 school year.

For those not on the plan, the cost of a standard breakfast is $1.50, and the lunch price is $2.45.

However, if you fall under a certain income threshold, your children can qualify for free or reduced-price meals offered by the schools.

The lowered cost for breakfast is $.30 while the lunch rate is only ten cents extra at $.40.

To be eligible for free or reduced-price breakfast and lunches, you must meet one of the following guidelines:

– Children in households receiving benefits from Alabama SNAP, the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) or Alabama TANF
– Children in the households receiving benefits from Medicaid
– Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court
– Children participating in their school’s Head Start program
– Children who meet the definition of homeless, runaway, or migrant

If you were not notified of your children’s approval for free or reduced-price meals and believe that you qualify, fill out an application form either online or fill out and return a paper application to SCS Child Nutrition Program director Kelly Wassermann at the Sylacauga Board of Education.
