The federal pandemic-era waivers that enabled local districts to supplement the cost of every school meal expired June 30, 2022 and was not renewed by Congress.

Fayette Co. School Board Chair Tyler Murphy wrote in a Facebook post, “Any student who qualifies for free and reduced meal pricing, no matter which school or program they attend, will continue to eat free—that remains our commitment and priority.”

The 2022-23 meal prices for the 18 schools/programs ineligible for CEP and the families at those schools who do not otherwise qualify for assistance will be: $2 for breakfast at all grades; $2.75 for lunch at elementary schools; $3 for lunch at middle and high schools.

Murphy also wrote, “While the changing federal guidelines have placed us in a position to resume asking families who are at the 18 schools/programs not eligible for CEP and who don’t qualify for assistance to please pay if they are able to pay, no child will be denied a school meal based on ability to pay.”
