Free breakfast, lunch to all LCSD students


The USDA made it possible for School Districts across the Country to serve Breakfast and Lunches at no charge to support families during the Covid-19 Pandemic. This program will be in effect from September 2020 through December 2020 or until funding runs out. The Lancaster County School District’s Department of Food services has been planning for this event and look forward to serving as many students that will participate with us. All of the schools of Lancaster County School District are considered closed sites and will only serve registered students that attend a K-12 program within the District.

Our plan is as follows:
A/B Day students
We plan to serve students free at no charge Breakfast and Lunch on every day that they physically attend school with us. In addition, we plan to send 3 Breakfast and 3 Lunches home with students on Tuesdays and Fridays of each week to support the 3 days in which they are not physically attending school with us and are at home.

-Virtual students will be able to pick up 5 Breakfasts and 5 Lunches on Wednesdays Only from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
