Children need healthy meals to learn. Watauga County Schools offers healthy meals every school day. All breakfast and lunch meals for the 2021/22 school year will be free for all students. USDA has allowed this benefit for families due to the COVID pandemic. Although meals are free for all students this school year if you feel that you would qualify for free or reduced meals you should still complete the free/reduced meal application. Some state and federal programs use this qualification information for benefits other than school meals.
Adult meals are offered for breakfast and lunch each day. Adults may purchase breakfast items at a la carte prices. Adults may purchase lunch for $4.00 per day.
