Over the past two years, it has been our pleasure to serve meals at no cost to all students, regardless of income. However, the federal funding required to continue feeding all students at no cost for the upcoming school year has not been granted by Congress.

Friendship, Gadsden, and Maury City Elementary school students will continue to receive meals at no cost for the 22-23 school year due to being a Provision 2 or CEP school.

Breakfast will remain at no cost for Crockett County Middle School and Crockett County High School students. Free and reduced lunch meals will still be available to those CCMS and CCHS students who qualify based on household income via free and reduced meal applications. All other CCMS and CCHS students must pay full price ($2.85) for their lunches. Free and reduced meal applications will be sent home with students at the beginning of the school year and will also be available at Open House. Applications may also be completed online at as well.

Crockett County School Nutrition remains committed to providing safe, healthy, and enjoyable meals to our students. We thank you for the support that you have given to us over the last several years, and we look forward to continuing to do what we love most- feeding our children!


One of our elementary schools received a very generous USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant. We are very proud that Friendship Elementary was chosen for this grant and students will be able to learn about and taste a variety of new fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the 2022-23 school year.

The goals of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) are to:

  • Create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices.
  • Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience.
  • Increase children's fruit and vegetable consumption.
  • Make a difference in children's diets to impact their present and future health

2023 Friendship Elementary FFVP Letter


*The USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program encourages consumption of fruits and vegetables by making fruit and vegetable snacks available at no cost to all children in participating schools.  The Nutrition Programs Title of the 2002 Farm Act provided $6 million for USDA to award to schools through a Fruit and Vegetable Pilot Program (FVPP) for the 2002-03 school year.  The program has since become a permanent program that was expanded to cover selected schools in all 50 States, as part of the 2008 Farm Bill.
