Lunch Menu

Breakfast is served at no cost to all Habersham County students.

Lunch meal cost is $1.85 for elementary school students and $2.10 for middle and high school students.

School lunch meals should be paid for in advance or at the time of purchase.

Payments can be made by check or cash at your student’s school cafeteria.

Parents may check their student’s meal account balance, set up a low balance alert and make payments online using debit or credit card at .

Families must reapply each school year for free and reduced price meal benefits. If your child received free or reduced price meals last school year, they will continue to receive those benefits for the first 30 days of the new school year; this allows parents a reasonable amount of time to reapply.

We encourage all families to complete the free and reduced application and return it to the school nutrition manager at their child’s school or to school nutrition department located in the Board of Education building. All free and reduced meal benefit information is confidential. Meal applications are available online at and each school website.

If necessary, a student lunch may be charged. All charges must be paid as soon as possible. All students will be limited to 5 days of meal charges. Students with a negative balance are not able to purchase A la carte or extra food items in the cafeteria.

Students with unpaid meal charges could be denied participation in special events or activities (book fairs, field days, field trips, dances, purchasing yearbooks, parking passes or graduation ceremonies) if deemed necessary. All charges must be paid by the end of the school year.
