Free students meals at all Lumpkin County Schools!

We offer a convenient online pre-payment service, MyPaymentsPlus, and for FREE you can sign up and see what your students have bought each day from their meal accounts.  For a small fee you can also add money electronically through this service as well.

If you need a refund of funds on your students meal account(s) please submit a refund form to us, Attn: School Nutrition Program, Lumpkin County Schools Central Office, 56 Indian Dr., Dahlonega GA 30533

If you need a form documenting meal eligibility status for your student (for some other programs or activities) you may need one of these two forms:

Menus change up monthly and include seasonal Farm to School local produce; please note with unanticipated school closures due to weather, etc., the menu on the day we return may be that of the prior day.

We are delighted to bring back Salad Bars in all schools!

We can help you with your student's Special Dietary Needs in the cafeteria too, please call Julie at (706) 864-3611 for more information. A Spanish form is also available here.

All families and community members are invited to join our school-wide efforts to promote health & wellness through each school's Wellness Team team.  School Nutrition is charged with implementing our Wellness Policy in schools, teams work to provide fun educational activities for students and assess outcomes annually by school & triennially system-wide.  Some Wellness based activities completed so far this school year include the School Food Drive, the Garden Hero promotions and the LCES school composting effort to support their Garden Club & Hometown Harvest Dahlonega gardens - environmental wellness counts too!

The Lumpkin County School Nutrition Program supports and participates in community service with local organizations such Lumpkin Family Connections,  Community Helping Place (#LumpkinMatters events), Lumpkin 4-H, & the Georgia Mountain Food Bank which serves Lumpkin & surrounding counties.

In addition, we partner with University of North Georgia for Hometown Harvest Dahlonega, a local garden initiative, and we benefit from some of the fresh vegetables & fruit grown there in our school meals! Follow and support @UNGHometownHarvest on Facebook & Instagram.

Thank you and please contact us with any addition questions or concerns:
