Student Nutrition Department


The Kenton County School District Student Nutrition Department strives to provide all students with delicious, nutritionally balanced, low-cost, or free meals every school day.  Adequate nutrition is critical to the proper growth and cognitive development of children.  Breakfast and lunches that meet nutrition requirements set by the National School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program are provided every school day to ensure that all students are prepared to receive their world class education.    


The Kenton County School District will continue to provide students with free breakfast and lunch for the 2021-2022 school year, regardless of income. However, it is imperative that if your household would qualify for free- or reduced-price meals, you still complete the Free and Reduced-Price School Meals Application for all students in your household. By filling out this form, your child may receive additional benefits, and the number of applications approved can affect how much funding schools receive to meet academic benchmarks.
