FREE MEALS FOR ALL STUDENTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE
We have enjoyed serving all of our students lunch at no-cost to you for the past two years, but our current guidance from the USDA does not allow us to serve free meals to ALL students in the 2022-2023 school year. Free/Reduced Meal Benefits will be determined by application.
THE IMPORTANCE OF FREE AND REDUCED MEAL FORMS
You are highly encouraged to fill out the free and reduced meal application for your family. Applications are now available along with pricing and payment options.
The USDA will continue to update us throughout the school year, and we will notify you of new policies as they become available. Families who fill out these forms are eligible for additional benefits including reduced college testing and application fees as well as helping to provide essential funding for our schools.
THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO FEED YOUR CHILDREN
We will continue to serve high quality, nutrient dense meals that students enjoy. Our school lunch program is a soley funded entity that only receives revenue from meals served. When parents and students choose to purchase a lunch from school, it is the equivalent of supporting a small business. We greatly appreciate your support.
