Lexington Public Schools
Food Service Program
MEALS ARE FREE* FOR THE 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Whitsons Culinary Group at Lexington Public Schools
*A meal qualifies for free if it has at least THREE out of the FIVE meal components: grain, meat/meat alternative, fruits, vegetable, and dairy. One of the those three components must be a half cup of fruit or vegetable. If your child does not get all three, they will be charged a la carte for the meal. We encourage all students to grab a fruit and if they do not want it, they can place it in the Share Cooler, a mini-fridge that students can use to put food for other students to eat for free. One breakfast and one lunch are free per day per student.
