free and reduced price school meals

Children need healthy meals to learn. Burgin Independent Schools offers healthy meals every school day, both breakfast and lunch. Breakfast costs $1.85, lunch costs $2.80 for grades K-5 and $2.90 for grades 6-12. Your child may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Reduced price is $ .30 for breakfast and $ .40 for lunch. If your child is eligible for free lunch, they can eat both breakfast and lunch at school, and you will save over $800.00 per year, per child, while ensuring that they receive the nutrition they need to learn and grow. All it takes is filling out a quick form to see if you qualify. Please fill out the form completely and return it to the school either by mail (PO Box B, Burgin, KY 40310) or by dropping it off in the front office. You will be notified of your child’s lunch status within two weeks. For any additional questions, you can check out our Free and Reduced Meals FAQ, or contact Kate Sizemore, Food Service Director, at
