REMINDER: With the start of the new school year, cafeteria meal service will return to pre-pandemic practices. For many students, there will be no change; however, some schools will no longer receive meals at no cost to every student. Please review the list below to see if your child’s school will be impacted:
Aaron Cohn Middle School
Blackmon Road Middle School
Britt David Magnet Academy
Clubview Elementary School
Columbus High School
Double Churches Elementary School
Eagle Ridge Academy
Mathews Elementary School
North Columbus Elementary School
Northside High School
Rainey-McCullers School of the Arts
Veterans Memorial Middle School
The USDA will no longer provide meals at no cost to every student at the schools listed above. Therefore, students attending these schools will be expected to pay for meals, unless they qualify for free or reduced price meals.
If your child attends one of these schools and you believe you qualify for free or reduced price meals, you should complete the Free and Reduced Price Meal Application located on the Families tab of the MCSD webpage under “Apply For Lunch”. Paper applications will be available in the School Nutrition Office at the Public Education Center, 2960 Macon Road, Columbus GA. Parents may call the School Nutrition Office for additional information: 706-748-2389.
Students attending any other MCSD school will not be impacted by this change and will continue to receive meals at no cost to the student.
