A federal free lunch benefit offered during the pandemic is no longer available for the upcoming school year.

Families who may be eligible for free or reduced-price lunch meals must complete an online meal benefit application before the start of school in order to receive assistance.

Families that are not eligible or that do not have an application on file by the first day of school will pay full price for their meals.

Collier County Public Schools will continue to provide breakfast at no charge during the 2022-2023 school year.
