Child Nutrition Program

  • Boaz City School System Child Nutrition Program


    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. For the 2021-2022 school year, meals will be provided at no cost to all BCSS students (one breakfast, one lunch per student per day). Meal benefit applications are available online at A new application is required each school year and only one application is required for each family. Paper meal benefit applications are available by request at each school and at the Central Office. While meals are provided  no cost this school year to all students, it is still imperative that families complete the free/reduced meal application. 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. We accept prepayment by cash or check and also have online payments available. To sign up as a new user for online meal payments, go to or you can also go to 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, We highly encourage all of our students to participate in the Child Nutrition Program.
