School Nutrition

The BCS School Nutrition Department participates in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs. Our team of school nutrition employees serve more than # quality appealing meals to students annually. All meals are nutritionally balanced and adhere to the federal nutrition regulations set forth by the USDA. 

The department strives to make the cafeteria a welcoming environment for students to enjoy meals and recharge after a morning of learning. Through the year, the School Nutrition Department partners with our schools to offer special meals for programs like the Inspired By Lunch, Thanksgiving, Read Across America Week and more.

Free & Reduced Lunches

Bardstown Early Childhood, Bardstown Primary, Bardstown Elementary and Bardstown Middle Schools are a part of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Through the CEP program all BCS preschool through 8th grade students receive breakfast and lunch at no cost. All families at these schools will be asked to fill out a Household Income Form (HIF). This will allow the necessary information to be collected to provide other educational benefits to your children. In order for our district to continue meals at no cost to all preschool through eighth grade  students, it is important for you to return this form to your child’s school. Household Income Forms are distributed during the first week of school.

If you have questions, please contact Shannon Satterly at 502-331-8856 or

Families with students in grade 9-12 have the opportunity to apply for Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits. Applications may be submitted any time during the school year. The information provided on the application is confidential and will be used only for the purpose of determining eligibility. The eligibility criteria and application are available for download below. 

Questions about the free or reduced meal program at Bardstown High School should be directed to Greta Samuels, School Nutrition Director, at 502-331-8812 or
