The USDA has extended several waivers through
as late as December 31, 2020.
The waivers allow school nutrition programs to serve free meals to
all students into the fall months. 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.
Starting September 1st, all meals (Breakfast and Lunch) are
FREE of charge for ALL students.
A La Carte items are still available for purchase.

a Free and Reduced Application and an Information Release Form must be
completed each year. Although the USDA has recently made Free meals
available for all students until at least December 31st, both forms need to be
completed in order to have fees waived.**
The online Free and Reduced application for
SY 2020-2021 is available now.
Please go to the Free and Reduced page
for instructions on how to apply online.
