FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH APPLICATIONS The federal waiver that enabled schools to provide meals at no cost to students ended on June 30, 2022. School lunches will no longer be free for all Athens City Schools students. If you feel your family may qualify for free and/or reduced meals, please take a moment to complete the 2022-2023 Free and Reduced Lunch Application. Families must re-apply each school year to potentially receive this benefit. Only one application is necessary per family. Click here to apply and see if you qualify! Click here to learn more.
