Meal Hardship Funds

Good nutrition is critical to a student’s academic success. It is the policy of the Radford City School Nutrition Program that school meals will never be denied, even in the instance of a high balance due on a student’s account. Students will also never be given a less appealing “alternate meal” if money is owed.

Per federal regulations, school nutrition funds may not be used to offset meal charges. To assist families with balances due on a case-by-case basis, and at the discretion of the Director of School Nutrition, the district will maintain a hardship fund that is subsidized by donations from families and the public. The department will actively seek donations to maintain a healthy balance in this fund.

If you or your organization would like to make a donation to our meal hardship fund, please send a check with “Meal Hardship Fund” in the memo to:
Radford City School Nutrition Program
1612 Wadsworth Street
Radford, VA 24141
