Franklin City Schools is excited to announce that free meals for students ages 1-18 are back!  

USDA has announced that they will make meals free to all children in our district through December 31, 2020.  Effective, Monday, September 14th, 2020 students can take advantage of these meals in the cafeteria for those attending in-person, as well as by ordering meals if your student is doing remote learning, home schooling, or not quite school age. This option is available to ALL children that reside in Franklin City Schools Community.  We will continue to serve National School Lunch meals when we return from Winter Break.   In the meantime, you will still want to fill out free and reduced forms if you haven’t yet this school year if you feel you might qualify.  If you qualify, school fees may also be waived.  You can visit for school lunch applications.

 Every meal featured on our menus will follow the same portions regardless of age and will be free of charge.  Lunches will have an entrée, fruit, vegetable, and milk.  Breakfast will include an entrée, fruit, and milk.  We encourage all students to take advantage of this program, as it not only helps our students, but also our lunch program.

Please see below for the two-options of meal service.

100% In-person Learning

If your child is attending in-person, every meal on the menu will be free regardless of meal status. Visit our menus for each building at  These meals will not be charged to your child’s account in MealsPlus.  If your child decides to purchase extra items, snacks, and beverages, only those purchases will reflect on MealsPlus.  Any purchases outside the free meal MUST have funds on your child account.  Please send cash, check, or make online payments at

Free Breakfast is available in the cafeteria for all buildings. Limit only one free meal (Breakfast and/or lunch) per day.  Any extra meals will be charged to your child’s account.

Virtual classes, Homeschooling, and Remote students ages 1-18

If your child is attending Virtual classes, Homeschooling, Remote learning, or  not enrolled in Franklin City Schools, but is age 1-18, you will need to sign up for our meals by emailing Lori Feltner at, your name, address and child/childrens name that is not attending in-person school.    A special menu will be published on line for the meal pick up.  Meals will be available for pick up on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:00pm-4:00pm at the High School front lobby door.  You will receive 3 days of meals for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on Monday distribution day.  On Thursday, you will receive 2 days of meals for Friday and Monday.  Meal and distribution times are subject to change pending school closures and volume.  We will communicate alternate days as needed on social media and official school email.

We will issue a “Meal Pick Up Form” for you the first time you pick up meals.  You will fill in the form with your children’s information and agree that you will bring this form each time you pick up meals. If some of your children attend school in-person, they will receive their meals at school, and you should NOT pick up their meals at this site.  We will only have one choice of lunch available per day for pick up but will follow a calendar menu so choices will be different daily. Free breakfast is also included for all students signed up for meals for all ages under the pick-up option. Options for breakfast will include a rotation of pre-packaged items.  The menu published is subject to change without notice.

If you wish to sign up for weekly meals for every Monday and Thursday, please indicate “standing meals” in your email.  Quantities will be limited, so if you are interested you must sign up.  If you are unable to pick up on the days stated please let us know by emailing, by 10am each Wednesday and Friday. Once you select Standing meals, we will plan to have your meals available each Monday and Thursday.   Please park or pull off to the side of the parking lot so as to not block any parked cars or bus parking in the front high school lot.  You will walk up to the front lobby door where you will find our food service personnel.  If you have multiple students to pick up for, we recommend you bring a box or larger bag.  Please wear a mask and abide by social distancing of 6 feet from the next family.  You do not have to have your children with you at time of pick up.  If you have planned for someone else to pick up your meals for your family, please ensure that you give your form to that individual, so they have the required information to pick up your meals.  Please also indicate your name on the form as well as the person designated to pick up your meals.  We will provide updates if we decide to change our pickup times and location via District emails and social media.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Lori Feltner at
