Parents and/or guardians or other volunteers can pick up meals for their children and other children in their neighborhood. The child’s name is required at pick up.

Students attending face-to-face may eat breakfast and lunch on campus and may either eat supper on campus or take off campus. Weekend meals will be given to students on Fridays.

School-Based Fundraising

Would you consider making a monetary donation to help us
achieve our mission to help our students in need?

It’s a fact that students who eat nutritious meals perform better in school. Orange County Public Schools Food & Nutrition Services Department makes it possible for all students, even those who do not qualify for free meals, to receive healthy and nutritious meals daily regardless of the available funds in their food services account.

At Orange County Public Schools, we seek to help our families in any way we can to include bringing their student’s negative food service account into good standing.  While we continue to fundraise through activities both on and off campus, we still have a lot to accomplish to reach our goal. 

The FNS program is an enterprise and does not receive funds from the district. Our funding comes only from USDA for serving meals. While funding is available for students eligible for free or reduced payment meals, student meals without eligibility are not funded. The FNS program depends on collecting payment from parents. This is not always possible as many parents are still struggling to pay bills and other expenses.

We greatly appreciate your donation and it will be used to resolve student food service accounts with negative balances.  You can make a donation three ways:

  1. Use SchoolPay by clicking here www.SchoolPay.com (Use the Angel Fund)
  2. Payments via mail can be sent to Food and Nutrition Services, 8101 Benrus St., Orlando, FL 32827.
    • Make checks payable to the Foundation of Orange County Public Schools(Foundation OCPS).
    • Include the school’s name in the check memo area.
  3. A direct donation can be made to "Foundation for Orange County Public Schools
    • Be sure to select OCPS Food and Nutrition under Donation Options: I want to support a specific school fund/district fund.  These instructions are shown visually in the image below:
