502 Food Works Fueling Louisville's Future

2022-23 School Year

The USDA made it possible for school nutrition programs to serve all students free meals through waivers during the pandemic. Congress did not extend these waivers for the upcoming school year, so Community Eligibility (CE) and Non-CE school eligibility will be back in place along with regular meal service. 

Please visit the Meal Applications page for more information regarding which forms to fill out, as well as the Meal Payments Made Easy page to easily add money to your child's/children's meal account. 

If you attend the Pathfinder School of Innovation and need information about meal service, contact (502) 485-3186. 


School and Community Nutrition Services (502 Food Works) oversees schools to ensure that healthy and safe meals and/or snacks are always available to students.

502 Food Works is committed to providing nutritious meals at a reasonable price. We provide meals for breakfast, lunch, after-school programs, summertime, and even during emergencies. Families are encouraged to apply for free and reduced-price meal eligibility at the beginning of each year if they attend a Non-CE school or to complete an Educational Benefits Form if attending a CE school.

502 Food Works is one of the best values around, providing well-balanced meals with all five food groups. We follow the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrition requirements that include age- and grade-appropriate calorie ranges, whole-grain-rich products, low-fat dairy, reduced sodium, and no trans-fats.

We love Fueling Louisville’s Future one meal at a time!
