Hickman County Schools Provide Meals at No Charge To Students

It is with great pleasure that our school announces the ability to provide a breakfast and lunch each day at no charge to students. We have added new meal choices based on student preference, and anticipate options to be of greater quality than ever before. We are also excited to announce that we will begin a grab and go breakfast program in hopes to make breakfast more accessible to each student before beginning their day of learning. We look forward to an opportunity to ensure that no kid will ever go hungry at Hickman County Schools.
