General Information

Mountain Education Center Charter High School is pleased to offer a nightly healthy meal option to our students and staff through the School Nutrition Meal Program. MECHS will continue to implement the Special Provision II School Lunch Program for Free Meal Reimbursement in school year 2016. Through the Special Provision II School Lunch Program, a school district, a group of schools or a single school may offer meals at no charge to all students. This eliminates the procedure of distributing and processing meal applications. We encourage all MECHS students to take advantage of this opportunity.

For more information about the School Nutrition Program or the Special Provision II Lunch Program, contact 706-219-4664 or email awilson@mymec.org.
