Food is provided to Coastal Plains students at each site. The food program meets the needs of students for various reasons. Having food at the sites allows students to come to school straight from work without going all the way home. Research has shown when students don't have their basic essential life needs addressed, then it is very difficult for them to learn.

FY22 CPHS provided approximately 24,000 meals for students.
FY23 CPHS provided approximately 35,000 meals for students.

Coastal Plains High School works with vendors throughout our 15 partnering communities across South Georgia thus supporting each local economy.
