USDA announces meals at no charge for all students!

The USDA has announced that all meals served to OCPS students will be at no charge until December 17th. The Food and Nutrition Services program will be serving students enrolled in either LaunchED or Face to Face meals at no charge in all schools. Students in LaunchED can continue to pick up meals curb side at any school. Please continue to check the web site for schools serving meals curbside as there will be some consolidation.

If you have any concerns about receiving meals, please contact your school’s food service manager.

 

 

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
