School Nutrition

Clyattville Elementary, Moulton Branch Elementary, Lake Park Elementary and Lowndes Middle School all operate under CEP (Community Eligibility Provision). These schools receive breakfast and lunch at no cost.

Elementary school lunch cost $2.05

Middle and High School lunch cost $2.25

Breakfast cost at all schools $2.00

Reduced cost breakfast at all schools $.30

Reduced cost lunch at all schools $.40

As you are aware, schools have been able to offer breakfast and lunch at no charge to students during the last two school years. This was made possible thanks to the generous support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture reimbursements to school systems for meals served to students, regardless of their income.

For the school year 2022-2023, if you believe your student(s) are eligible for free or reduced meal prices, Lowndes County Schools is requesting all families to complete and submit a Free and Reduced Meal Application by September 16, 2022. The application can also be completed online using this link

Clyattville Elementary, Moulton Branch Elementary, Lake Park Elementary and Lowndes Middle Schools will operate under the Community Eligibility Provision(CEP). These schools will receive breakfast and lunch meals at no cost.

For information about the Lowndes County School Nutrition Program, please contact Deidra Frier, Eligibility Clerk, at (229) 245-2443 or

The entire Lowndes County School District staff is looking forward to supporting your child in the coming school year.
