A “grab and go” cooler offers salads, sandwiches, yogurt, and assorted drinks. TAD offers scratch-made pizza, two entrees, and several side dishes and fruit. They also have a "grab and go" cooler in the cafeteria. WSE and HME also make pizza from scratch. Low fat, low sugar snacks are sold in all cafeterias. In addition to regular meals, after-school snacks are served to students in ESP, and Breakfast in the Classroom is offered in pre-K through 5th grade.

Free and Reduced Meals
Elizabethton City Schools encourage all families to complete the Free & Reduced Application.
Federal Waivers, which have allowed all students to eat free since March 2020, will no longer be in effect for the 2022-2023 school year. Except for East Side Elementary and Harold McCormick Elementary are CEP schools and will continue to receive free meals. Service will resume operating as it did before the pandemic for all other schools. For students to receive free or reduced prices on school meals, they must have an approved application on file. You can apply on the Elizabethton City School’s website or fill out a paper application available at each school. Families must reapply each year and can apply anytime during the school year.
To access the application for free and reduced prices on school meals sign in to Skyward Family Access to update returning student forms.

Community Eligibility Provision
The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a meal service option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. A key provision of The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA, Public Law 111-296; December 13, 2010), CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without the burden of collecting household applications. Instead, schools that adopt CEP are reimbursed using a formula based on the percentage of students participating in other specific means-tested programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
Two Elizabethton elementary schools benefit from the CEP. Read more about the program on the USDA webpage.
