October 12, 2020

Clay County District Schools will offer free meals for all students through the 2020-2021 school year. U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending flexibilities to allow free meals to continue to be available to all children throughout the entire 2020-2021 school year. Please see information below regarding distribution for Clay County District Schools. 

Students must be 18 years of age or younger to receive a free meal.

Lunch for the day and breakfast for the next day will also be available for pick-up for those not attending a brick and mortar school. Please contact your school for pickup times and location.

Valid forms of identification may include, but are not limited to, school identification card, child’s passport, government-issued child identification card, or any document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree; doctor, clinic or hospital record; religious record; or daycare center record.
