    Food & Nutrition Services


    The federal waiver and funding that allowed us to provide free meals for all students ended in May of 2022. Unfortunately, NKC Schools is no longer able to offer free meals for all. If you believe that you might qualify for free or reduced meals, fill out an application online as soon as possible. More information is available here.

    Families are strongly encouraged to apply for the free/reduced price meals program. This ensures discounts on a variety of other programs, including testing, activity fees and more! .
