JCPS offering free meals during summer food program

Free meals provided to children at more than 160 sites across Jefferson County

Beginning June 10, Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) will once again be offering free breakfast and lunch to children and teens during the district’s summer food service program.

The JCPS summer food service program provides free nutritious meals to any child 18 years of age or younger at more than 160 schools, churches and community centers across Jefferson County. Additionally, two JCPS Bus Stop Cafés—retired school buses that have been converted into mobile dining cafeterias—visit nearly three dozen sites daily, including at neighborhoods, parks and community centers.

Families can find a site near them in several ways:

• Text “FOOD” to 877877; (available after June 14th)
• Check the school menu section of the JCPS mobile app;
• Visit to see locations and menu 

Each summer, the JCPS Nutrition Services team serves approximately 300,000 meals to children and teens during the program. The program, which runs through August 2, 2019, is open to anyone age 18 or under, regardless of whether he or she attends JCPS.
