Due to the coronavirus, many households have suffered a loss of income or some other financial hardship. Marion County Schools are able to provide all students with free meals through December 2020. This helps our schools expand nutritious meals to your household at no charge to you.
Other federal relief benefits, however, might become available and could be related to the free/reduced-price school meal status of your child.
We invite you to complete a standard application for school meal benefits if you have not already done so for this school year, and if you believe your child may now qualify for free or reduced price meals if this were a regular school year.
This is out of anticipation of other federal relief benefits that might become available in the future that could be related to the free or reduced-price meal status of each student.
Completing this application will not impact or change your child’s ability to access free school meals through December.
To complete a school meal benefit application, please visit www.schoolcafe.com or contact our county child nutrition office at 304-367-2106.
Marion County Schools will post relevant news, updates, and guidance for parents, students, teachers, and staff on this page to keep you informed.
