The USDA has extended several waivers through

    June 30th, 2022. 

    The waivers allow school nutrition programs to serve free meals to

    all students this entire school year.  This unprecedented move will help

    ensure-- no matter the situation--  children will have access to nutritious

    food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    During the school year 2021-2022, all meals (Breakfast and Lunch) are

    FREE of charge for ALL students. 

    A La Carte items are still available for purchase.
