Breakfast/Lunch Prices Back in Effect: 

For the past year and a half the Moore County Schools Nutrition Department has been able to provide breakfast and lunch to all students free of charge due to federal pandemic relief funding.  The funding that allowed this has been discontinued for the 2022-23 school year. Only those students that apply for free or reduced price meals will be eligible for discounts for breakfast or lunch.  You can download and complete the application now.  Completed applications can be mailed to Moore County School Nutrition, 308 Mechanic Street North, Lynchburg, TN 37352. 

We would like to encourage everyone that might qualify for free/reduced benefits to fill out the forms provided. Our school system receives federal funding based on the percentage of free/reduced qualifying students and also there are additional benefits for the family if they do qualify- such as with P-EBT.

Nearly 32 million children receive meals throughout the school day. These meals are based on nutrition standards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. New nutrition standards for schools increase access to healthy food and encourage kids to make smart choices. Schools are working to make meals more nutritious, keep all students hunger-free, and help children maintain or reach a healthy weight.

Moore County school cafeterias are meeting new federal guidelines for school meals.

Moore County School Nutrition Program offers a variety of daily choices. Now is a
great time to encourage your children to choose school meals.
Let us do your homework for you! Set up AutoPay today and never forget to add lunch money to your student’s account again.
How the program works:

When enrolled, each student is given an account with a Personal Identification Number or Pin number.
This number will remain the same throughout their time at Moore County Schools. To access their
account, the students will be asked by the cashier to type in their PIN number. They will do this on a keypad located
on the cashier stand.

Depositing Monies into an Account

You can do this a few different ways. You can send in check or cash with your child, though we prefer
checks. All checks and cash should be inside of a sealed envelope with child and teacher name on the
outside of the envelope for elementary students. You can also stop by and visit the cafeteria to make a
deposit or you can make a deposit via our online system at This online
service offers you the convenience and information you need to manage your child’s account. This
system will eliminate the need to send payments to school or worry about lost or forgotten lunch
We encourage all parents to monitor their child’s account on a weekly basis.
At no cost: MySchoolBucks allows any family to:
  • Create a free, secured account to manage all of your child’s account
  • Check your student’s current account balance
  • Monitor the items your child has been purchasing in the cafeteria
  • Create settings to receive email notifications when the account reaches a low balance
For a small fee, MySchoolBucks  allows any family to:
  • Make a prepayment into your child’s account using a check, credit card, or debit card.
