The Turner Unified School District Food Service Department, in partnership with Opaa! Foods, offers convenient and nutritious meals for all students in Preschool through 12th grade. Please choose a topic below for additional information about the Food Service Department.
Free School Meals for ALL Students
School breakfast and lunch will be free for all students during the 21 - 22 school year! This is being provided by a federal program through the USDA, which covers the cost of the meals for all students. There is no need for families to fill out an application. We encourage families to take advantage of the free school meals - every meal that is served helps Turner food service program financially and keeps local food service staff members employed. The free meals, which are safe, nutritious, and delicious, help extend family food budgets, too. For more information, contact Nikki Parrett, Food Services Coordinator, at 913-288-4141.
