Universal Free Breakfast Program

The Orange County Schools Board of Education  is committed to making sure that all of our students are fully prepared for academic success. In order to support success for students in the school system, the Board of Education has acted to ensure that students can receive a nutritious breakfast to begin the school day. Hunger will not be a barrier to success during the school day.

Beginning July 1, 2016, the School Breakfast Program will be the Pilot Universal Free Breakfast Program from Pre-K through fifth grade. All elementary students will eat breakfast at no charge on school days.  No advance registration is necessary for students of Orange County Schools. Students may eat breakfast on any day they choose. These meals will meet all government nutritional guidelines, and our staff will be working to provide students with a variety of choices.

For more information,  please contact the Child Nutrition Services department at 919-245-4002 or visit to access the district website.
