Monday's MLK holiday prompts shift in meals schedule

The Child Nutrition staff in Fayette County Public Schools will distribute bagged meals one day later than normal because of Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, when schools and FCPS offices are closed. Families may pick up food on Tuesday, Jan. 19, and Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the usual time and locations.

  • List of pickup sites -- Note the winter hours. Schedule adjustments are made for holidays and inclement weather. 

Families can receive food bags at any site regardless of student enrollment, but please limit pickups to one per household so there is enough food for everyone in need. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has allowed school districts to use the national waiver for expanded meal service for children and families. Therefore:   

  • Free breakfasts and lunches are available for anyone age 18 and younger.
  • Children do not have to be enrolled in Fayette County Public Schools.
  • Children do not have to be present for meals pickup. 

For more about food service in FCPS, please visit the Child Nutrition webpages.
