School Meals - Frequently Asked Questions


Can I prepay for my child's breakfast, lunch and extras?
Absolutely! It will be easier for you, your child, and the cafeteria staff if you prepay for your child's meals. Our computer system allows parents to prepay by depositing money into a child's individual account. Child Nutrition provide prepaid envelopes that are available through the cafeteria manager. You may pay for meals in advance by the week or month. Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools also has an online payment option. Log on to www.payforit.net to register and setup an account for your child.


Can teachers or other school personnel restrict what a child selects from food offered in the cafeteria?
No. What a child selects is a decision made by the child and their parents.

May school lunch be held or restricted as a discipline method?
No. The National School Lunch Act and the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 prohibits school food authorities from denying a meal or milk to any eligible child as a disciplinary measure. Any instance of this activity should be immediately reported to the School Principal and Child Nutrition Director.

How do I get meal substitutions or special nutritional needs met for my child?
You may obtain a Diet Order Form from the school nurse. The Diet Order must be completed by your child's doctor each year and turned into the school nurse. Once the completed order is received it is forwarded to cafeteria manager and the Director of Child Nutrition, a Registered Dietitian. At this point, the Director of Child Nutrition gives instructions to the cafeteria manager and contacts the parents as needed. You may obtain a Diet Order Form from the school nurse.

Who can get free meals?
All children in households receiving benefits from Food and Nutrition Services, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations or TANF/Work First can get free meals regardless of your income. Also, your children can get free meals if your household's gross income is within the free limits on the Federal Income Guidelines.

Can foster children get free meals?
Yes, foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals. Any foster child in the household is eligible for free meals regardless of income.

Can homeless, runaway and migrant children get free meals?

Yes, children who meet the definition of homeless, runaway or migrant qualify for free meals. If your children meet the definition of homeless, runaway or migrant but have not been informed that they will get free meals, please call or e-mail Dr. Amy Rogers at (252) 462-2855 (acrogers@nrms.k12.nc.us) for homeless/runaway and Vilma Grava at (252) 567-4085 (vgrava@nrms.k12.nc.us) for migrant.

Who can get reduced price meals?
Children from families whose total household income is within the reduced price limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines Chart can get school meals at a maximum reduced price of 40 cents for lunch and no charge for breakfast.

Should I fill out an application if I received a letter this school year saying my children are approved for free meals?
No, but please read the letter you received carefully and follow the instructions. Call Polly Vaughan at the Child Nutrition Office at (252) 462-2491 or e-mail pbvaughan@nrms.k12.nc.us if you have questions.

Do I need to fill out a Free or Reduced-price meals application for each child?
No, you only need one application for each household.

Can I complete an application for free or reduced-price meals by phone or fax?
We are unable to receive applications by phone or FAX. All applications must be on an original official form, and must be mailed or hand-delivered to the address on the front of the application form or to your child's school.

If I don't qualify now, may I reapply for Free or Reduced-price meals later?

Yes. You may apply at any time during the school year if your household size goes up, income goes down, or if you start getting Food and Nutrition Services (FNS, formerly Food Stamps), TANF or other benefits. If you lose your job, your children may also be eligible.
