Again for the 2021-22 School year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended its waiver program to ensure all Herron Classical Scholars receive high-quality, nutritious meals. For this reason, all HCS scholars are eligible for one free breakfast and one free lunch per day. *Free meals apply to standard breakfast and lunch only – à la carte menu items will incur a charge.

Families will still need to apply for free and reduced-price meals in order to determine eligibility for school fee and textbook assistance. Please complete a Free and Reduced Price School Meals Program Application by following the link below:
