    Community Eligibility Provision

    Sampson County Schools School Nutrition Department is pleased to announce the implementation of the Community Eligibility Provision in ALL Sampson County Schools.  The implementation of this provision means that ALL students in Sampson County Schools will receive a reimbursable breakfast and reimbursable lunch at no cost each day, regardless of household income.  FAMILIES DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE APPLICATIONS.

    Research has proven that hungry children cannot learn.  We look forward to being able to serve all students wholesome, nutritious meals at no cost.  Please contact the School Nutrition Office at 910-592-4111 ext. 1 if you have any questions regarding the implementation of the Community Eligibility Provision.
