KCSD to provide free breakfast, lunch to students

KNOXVILLE — The Knoxville Community School District has received state approval to provide free breakfast and lunch meals to students.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved free breakfast and lunch meals for all students until Dec. 31, 2020, or until funds run out, whichever happens first. Starting Wednesday, Sept. 16, students will not be charged for school meals.

The program applies to all students, including those learning remotely at this time. However, students will still need to pay for a la carte items. The program also does not cover adult meals.

“This is great news for our entire school district community! We hope the program provides a little relief for our families during this difficult time,” said KCSD Child Nutrition Director Jason Swanson.
