Child Nutrition Program

  • Boaz City School System Child Nutrition Program

    2022-2023

    The goal of the Boaz City School System Child Nutrition Program is to provide safe and nutritious meals to all of our students. Boaz City participates in the National School Lunch Program, the National School Breakfast Program, Snack Program and the Seamless Summer Feeding Option Program. BCSS CNP provides afterschool snacks to our students participating in the Extended Day Program. During the past two school years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the USDA provided waivers that allowed school systems to provide meals at no cost. However, these waivers will not be available after the summer of 2022. For the 2022-2023 school year, students will return to being charged for meals according to their meal status. A student can qualify for free or reduced meals by applying for meal benefits. Meal benefit applications are now available online at https://www.myschoolapps.com. A new application is required each school year and only one application is required for each family. The online meal benefit application can be accessed by computer or smart phone. Paper meal benefit applications are available by request at each
    school. Meeting the criteria for meals benefits may qualify students for additional discounts/waivers for other programs and fees, it may qualify students for scholarships and the summer pandemic EBT program and also helps determine the system’s federal funding. Students will be able to purchase extra alacarte items or second meals. A special Universal Breakfast Program will be available at Boaz Elementary and Corley Elementary where all students will eat breakfast at no cost.

    We accept prepayment by cash or check and also have online payments available for student meals and alacarte. To sign up as a new user for online meal payments, go to http://www.myschoolbucks.com or you can also go to www.boazk12.org and click on the “Pay Lunch Money” link under popular links. We highly encourage families to use online payments or prepay by check.

    Please contact Mrs. Brandy Tarvin, CNP Director, with any questions about the Child Nutrition Program, btarvin@boazk12.org. We highly encourage all of our students to participate in the
    Child Nutrition Program.
