Free Meals for the Entire School Year for students

The United States Dept of Agriculture (USDA) has extended flexibilities in the Child Nutrition Programs to allow FREE meals to continue to all children throughout the entire 2020-21 school year. This means that Putnam County Schools will be able to offer FREE meals to all students while they are learning at school or even if they are learning from home. School meals will be able to be served at no cost in all areas of the county this school year.

How do students obtain these free meals if schooling is virtual?

  • Hot meals will continue to be available daily from each school through curbside pickup, parents can pick up a lunch meal along with the next day’s breakfast meal. Daily meal pick-up times are from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. The curbside  pick-up location for Buffalo High school is at the side cafeteria doors.  
  • If parents experience transportation issues, they can contact Buffalo High School and request a delivered meal.
  • Additional meal services provided to PCS students are 5-day meal boxes that are available each week for students that have signed up for Virtual learning during the 2020-21 school year. Please contact Buffalo High School to pre-order these meal boxes each week if desired.
