CHILD NUTRITION INFORMATION
A Message to Parents
A new school year is always an exciting time! New students flood our cafeterias, ready for new and exciting menus. This year, our goal is to increase meal participation. It is a proven fact that hungry children do not learn as well. Kids who eat nutritious meals perform better with increased attention spans and memory.
We look forward to having your child eat with us. If you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas on how we can better serve you and your child, please contact the Child Nutrition Office at 228-374-4428 or Chartwells at 228-435-5486.
Meal Benefits Applications

Biloxi Public Schools offers Meal Benefits. To see if your family qualifies, please fill out our form and return it to your child’s school. All students who were receiving free or reduced meal benefits at the end of school last year and attended Biloxi Public Schools will be able to eat using last year’s status for the first 30 days of school or until the new application has been processed. New students must pay full price until the application has been approved in our system. This may take up to 10 days. To provide a faster processing time, we now offer online applications which takes less time to process than paper applications.
