All Polk County Schools students will be able to enjoy free breakfast and lunch during the 2023-24 school year.

Earlier this year, the Polk County Board of Education approved district-wide participation in the Community Eligibility Provision of the National School Lunch program. This decision enabled the district to offer free meals to all students during the current school year.

Thus any student at any school in the district can receive free breakfast and lunch while on campus.
