Child Nutrition Service offers meals free or at reduced prices to families who qualify for this benefit. An application for meal benefits can be obtained at your student's school. The completed application must be returned to your child's school or mailed to Johnston County Schools Child Nutrition Services 601-C West Market Street, Smithfield, NC 27577.
Students who were approved for benefits last year will continue receiving meals under last year's approval until a new application is processed. Students have up to 30 days to reapply for meal benefits. Students who do not reapply for the current school year will need money for meals beginning the 31st school day.
If you received a letter that your child is directly certified to receive meals, you do not need to complete an application for meal benefits. New students must have applications approved before meal benefits can begin.
