Orange County Public Schools says every student will automatically qualify for free breakfasts, lunches and suppers this year through a USDA program.

Parents will not have to fill out any paperwork for their child to qualify for the program. 

The healthy and kid-friendly meals will be prepared by OCPS’ Food and Nutrition Services Department. 

Menus will be posted on the district’s website on a weekly basis and families can reserve meals for any child who needs to quarantine at home due to COVID-19. 

Breakfasts include items like waffles, egg sandwiches and yogurt and granola.

Lunches and suppers contain fresh fruits and vegetables and a main entrée like hot wings or Brazilian sweet bun and plantains.
