Free School Meals Offered to Children 0-18

-Cheatham County School District

The Cheatham County School District wishes to remind the community that children under the age of 18 can receive free meals.

This opportunity is a result of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approving a temporary waiver to allow schools to feed children for free through Dec. 31, 2020 or until federal funding runs out. 

What this means for Cheatham County families is that all children ages 0-18 are able to eat breakfast and lunch for free.

Families may pick up free meals for any of their children who are not of school age or enrolled in a Cheatham County school during curbside pick-ups on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the district’s three high schools – Cheatham County Central High School, Harpeth High School and Sycamore High School. Children do not have to be present in the vehicle when meals are picked up. 

Meals will not be distributed on Wednesday, Oct. 14 during fall break.

The district is very thankful for this USDA waiver as it allows us to further help our school nutrition program and our families as we have all been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact the School Nutrition Department at or 615-746-1411.
