Universal Meals At SACS

Parents and Guardians:

A few years ago, St. Albans City School started offering breakfast for all students at no charge. Starting this school year, we are excited to announce that all students will also eat lunch at no charge. All children enrolled in our school can eat for free each day. Even though there is no application required to participate, we ask that each family please fill out of the household income form that arrived with the first day packets so that we can continue to offer this, along with many other programs that benefit our school and students. If you need a form or you have questions, please contact Desiree Gunter at 527-0565 or

Part of what will help our meal program be successful is having every student participate. This benefits not just the student, but our school culture and helps to put more money into our program from the federal government resulting in higher quality food.

We are thrilled be able to offer this program and hope you will encourage your students to participate in school meals each day. Please feel free to contact the school with any questions or to discuss dietary needs.
