Free Meals For Kids!

As many of you have read in the news, the USDA made the surprise announcement to reverse a prior decision and make ALL meals free to any kid 18 years of age and under until December 31, 2020 or when funding runs out. Effective immediately, students at all schools serviced by Nutrition Services will have access to healthy and FREE meals everyday. This will be in place for in person learners as well as eLearners and their siblings. Nutrition Services is ecstatic with the news and working quickly to be ready to handle the expected increase in volume for in person meals AND remote meal bags. No reimbursable meals will be charged to student accounts. Ala carte items will continue to be sold at all levels.
