Thanks to the generosity of the organization All For Lunch, all outstanding lunch debt for Barrow County School System has been paid. All For Lunch sent a check to our Nutrition Department in December 2022 that covered the $2,852 owed. BCSS was one of several Georgia school districts All For Lunch helped.

Our Director of School Nutrition, Nicole Trunk, says, “Words cannot express how grateful we are to All For Lunch for the extremely generous donation to pay off lunch debt for Barrow students. This donation will make an impact on so many families and take the worry off lunch debt.”

Breakfast is offered at no cost to students. Free and reduced lunch is offered to those who qualify. Debts accrue when charges for daily school lunches go unpaid.

According to the BCSS Cafeteria Charge Policy:

  • Elementary and middle school students may only charge up to 5 meals. After this, an alternative meal will be provided.
  • High school students may not charge any meals. An alternative meal will be offered to the student.

Angel Accounts are also set up for each school cafeteria to help cover the cost of meals for students in need. If you would like to donate to a specific school, please contact the school’s cafeteria manager. If you would like to donate at the district level, please contact Olinda Slaton.
