BCSS Student Meal Costs for 2022-2023

For the past two years, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has offered waivers to Child Nutrition Programs across the United States, allowing these programs to offer all students breakfast and lunch, at no charge. These waivers have now expired. This means that beginning September 26, 2022, the Bulter County CNP program will return to normal, pre-pandemic operations. Families will once again be asked to complete and submit a current school year Free/Reduced Meal Application if they would like to see if their students qualify based on the income of all family members.

It is imperative that each household completes one lunch form that includes all the children in the household.  Hard-copy forms will be available at our schools and available for download here.

We are truly regretful for the additional expense that this causes our families and, as a district, we are working now to qualify for the CEP or Partial CEP program for the 2023-2024 school term. We encourage everyone with children in our system to register for a meal account through PayPAMS to monitor and pay for your child’s meals. For your financial planning, the following prices, which are the same as they were pre-COVID, will be charged for our school meals:

Full Price Meal Program                 Reduced Price Meal Program

$2.20 Lunch                                        $0.40 Lunch

$1.15 Breakfast                                 $0.30 Breakfast

For information regarding our school meal prices and applications, you may call Ms. Linda Perdue, CNP Director, at 334-382-2665, ext. 1251 or email her at
