Beginning Monday March 16th thru Tuesday April 7th , FCTS will begin delivering meals at designated drop off zones throughout Franklin County. If Franklin County Tech extends school closure beyond the above dates, FCTS will continue to provide meals. These meals will take the format of grab and go options for students to take home with them.

The following guidelines have been issued by the Department of Education in collaboration with USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which provide details for approved meals during school closures to be eligible for USDA reimbursement:

  • Franklin County Tech is allowed provisions to feed any enrolled students at FCTS, regardless if they qualify for free and reduced lunch.
  • FCTS will not deny any person under age 18 a meal
  • Meals are not allowed to be sold to adults
  • At each drop off zone, students will receive a complete lunch for that day and a breakfast for the following morning. FCTS will make one drop-off per day which includes both lunch and breakfast.
  • FCTS will work in collaboration with Kuzmeskus Bus Company to drop-off food to various designated areas throughout Franklin County
