Can students receive only a beverage?

No. HCPSS is currently participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture National School Lunch Program for the 2021-2022 school year. Through this program, all school meals are free for the 2021-2022 school year as long as we adhere to the requirements of the program. As part of the program, all students must be offered a full meal which includes milk or juice in order for the food service program to receive federal reimbursement.
