During the pandemic, we were able to feed all students breakfast and lunch for free through USDA waivers. The USDA has not continued the waivers to feed all students for free, so beginning in August, school meals will no longer be free for all students during the '22-'23 School Year. Meal benefit applications to qualify for Free & Reduced priced meals will be available by July 15th, 2022; please check back in July to apply online or pick up an application from the Nutrition Services Office. Applications will be available in schools at the end of July.
