Welcome! Browse for menus, prices, Free and Reduced Meal applications, payment info and more. Our Food Service Management Company is Lunchtime Solutions, Inc.

School lunch is more important than ever in these uncertain times. School meals provide nourishment that allows students to excel in the classroom and lead happy, healthy lives. They also help families stretch their food budget. This school year the Jones County School District is proud to be able to offer free meals to all students, thanks to a waiver granted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Even as our district continues to provide free meals to all students, we still ask families to submit school meals applications. Your determination in regards to free, reduced, or paid does not have an effect on your account for the 21-22 school year. You will still receive the free meals and your eligibility will carry over for the first 30 days of the next school year. However, these applications are used for more than determining eligibility for free and reduced-price meals. At the District level, free and reduced student numbers are used to help determine state and federal grant funding. These grants are an important part of the Jones County School District’s budget. The application can be found below or at the either of the school offices.
