Lunch Program

Last Updated: 1/8/2021 2:53 PM

Meals are FREE to all children through age 18 until June 30, 2021.  This service includes students eating in person at the school and for meal pick up and delivery.  For pick up and delivery, children do not need to be Johnson City School students.

Meals can be picked up at Science Hill High School Auditorium area, Cherokee Elementary cafeteria door, and Mountain View at the back of school. Due to the hybrid schedule at Indian Trail, pick up will be for the week of 1/11/2021 only.  Pick up behind the school. Pick up times are school days Monday through Friday 9:20-10:05. Contact the school cafeteria for any specific instructions.

Curbside Pick-up: How it works

● Eligible children will receive up to one breakfast and one lunch per day at the time of pick-up based on parent request.

● Each individual school will establish how traffic will flow and the precise pick up time and location for meals. Please contact the school cafeteria to find out how to pick-up meals at that school.

● You may choose any school to pick up meals; it doesn’t have to be the school your child attends. Parents/guardians with students at multiple schools should pick up all meals at one school site.

● Parents/guardians are allowed to pick up meals and bring them home to their children. Parents will be asked to complete a sheet listing student name, school, and meal(s) requested (breakfast and/or lunch) each day. This will be compared to student enrollment as duplicate meal service is not allowable.

Meal Delivery: How it works

● Meals will be delivered daily between 10 am to Noon depending on location and the bus delivery route. Eligible students will receive one breakfast and one lunch per day at the time of delivery.

If a need exists where no route is planned, please contact Ann Hilliard, Johnson City School Food Service, at 423-434-5228. The request will be reviewed and considered, but, not guaranteed.

Free & Reduced Lunch Applications:

How to Apply

● Applications for benefits will be available at all Johnson City Schools front office locations or on the bus routes. As meals are free for 20-21 school year, the benefits to applying include fee waivers, some senior cost waivers, and benefits that could include reduced costs for internet.  Application also helps schools receive state funding for additional service and personnel.

One application is submitted for all children in the household who attend school in Johnson City. You may return completed applications to any Johnson City school office, Central Office, or bus route.

● For more information regarding free and reduced benefits, please contact the School Food Service Office at 423-434-5228 or e-mail hilliardj@jcschools.org.
