Dear Okaloosa County School Families,
Early last week,  the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture announced that  they
were extending a program which allows Free Breakfast and  Lunches to
be provided to school students through December 22, 2020.   At this time the free 

meals for all students will only run until December 22, 2020, 

or until funding runs out, at which time statuses will return to Paid, Free and Reduced 

rates based on qualifications and applications so please return free and reduced meal

applications as soon as possible to avoid gaps in benefits.
Beginning Sept. 8, 2020, the Okaloosa County School District will begin offering a
FREE breakfast and Free lunch to each student f
or every school day. We will also
be offering meals for students to take home and enjoy on days when

they are distance learning. We will provide a full breakfast and lunch that
students can pick up from any 
of our cafeterias – all free of charge!
Please check with the school prior to picking up meals to verify 
scheduled pick
up times. We encourage all families to take advantage of this great program. 

We remain committed to providing students access to healthy, nutritious and
wholesome meals 
while assuring the utmost food safety without compromising
