All DCPS students can receive free breakfast and lunch

Free breakfast and lunch meals available for DCPS students

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Duval County Public Schools students will be able to receive free breakfast and lunch starting Monday, Sept. 21 until Dec. 31. This applies to brick-and-mortar and Duval HomeRoom students.

The school district announced the change is because of a recent update from the federal United States Department of Agriculture school feeding program.

All students who attend school for in-person learning will have access to these free meals at each DCPS school and will not need to present their student ID when going through the cafeteria line. “Meals will be served as normal at dining temperature (hot food, cold food) during regular school breakfast and lunch times,” according to DCPS.

There will be cold meals available daily at any school from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., regardless of enrollment, for Duval HomeRoom students.

The student or a parent will need to show either the Duval HomeRoom student’s school ID, a government-issued ID or a passport to receive the meals.
