Free and Reduced-Price Meals

Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications are now available on the FCPS website. Interested families are encouraged to submit the application as soon as possible. A new application must be submitted every school year. Paper copies of the application are also available in the main office.

As of July 1, the US Department of Agriculture pandemic program to provide no-cost meals to all public school students has ended. This school year, parents will either need to provide their students with money to purchase meals at school, send them with a packed lunch, or apply (and be approved) for free and reduced-price meals benefits.  


Purchasing Student Lunches

Prices for meals are the same as they were before the pandemic in 2020. School breakfast for students costs $1.75. Lunch is $3.25 for elementary students and $3.50 for middle, secondary, and high school students. 

The best way to purchase meals (and additional food items) is to use MySchoolBucks. Set up your student’s MySchoolBucks account online. If you have questions about MySchoolBucks, your school’s front office staff can help. Purchases made with MySchoolBucks keep cafeteria lines moving more quickly. Be ready on day one by setting up your child’s MySchoolBucks account, looking over the menus, and helping them learn their pin. You will receive an email from Food and Nutrition Services that includes your child’s pin.

There are three ways you can purchase lunch or breakfast for your child:

  1. Put money on your child's account online using Once the account is open, parents can check the fund account at anytime.
  2. Check - Make checks payable to "Hunters Woods Food Services" and place in an envelope clearly marked HWES Food Services Manager. Please include your student's name and student ID number.
  3. Cash - Cash may be brought to the Food Service Manager's office for deposit on your student's account.
