Parents and Families of Pike County Schools:
As you are aware, schools offered students breakfast and lunch at no charge for the last two school years. This was made possible thanks to the generous support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in reimbursing schools for meals served to students, regardless of their income. Unfortunately, this support will not be available during the 2022-2023 school year.
The school nutrition program is experiencing food shortages, labor shortages, weather issues, and transportation issues, which have caused Food Supply Chain shortages and price increases. In order to provide quality food service for our customers, keep the school nutrition program running, and to cover the inflating costs for the 2022-2023 school year, breakfast and lunch prices will increase. A student breakfast will cost $2.50, and a student lunch will cost $3.75.
For the 2022-2023 school year, Pike County Schools is requesting all families to complete and submit a Free and Reduced Meal Application as soon as possible. The application can be completed online using this link: https://mealapp.lunchtimesoftware.net/ or you may complete a paper application.
The School Nutrition Program is proud to introduce our new point of sales company, LunchTime. We have a new payment portal available for electronic payments on student meal accounts. If you would like to deposit money into your student’s account, have money available for your student to purchase extra food items, or have a previous balance, you should create an account at this link: https://www.schoolpaymentportal.com Please follow the directions as prompted to create an account.

Tammy G. Bell
Pike County Schools Nutrition Director
The Pike County Department of School Nutrition is dedicated to providing opportunities for students to grow and explore nutrition and its role in general wellness. We seek to enable those students who have already developed specific nutritional goals and provide that opportunity to those who have not.
It is our mission to provide uncompromising service to our customers by removing obstacles in the path of hungry students and promoting participation. We also seek to provide opportunities for explorers to expand their nutritional boundaries, overcome food insecurity and resist childhood obesity.
Pike County School Nutrition has over 100 years of combined service and leadership experience represented by our cafeteria managers. We serve over 1,750 students daily between our 4 schools and we are continuously finding ways to improve and provide better service to our students.
