Free School Meals for All Students!

The USDA has approved ALL kids ages 0-18 to get free meals through June 30, 2021! We will provide more information soon by memorandum placed in the Student Meals Program page of our school's website regarding how we will provide meals on non-holiday weekdays (teacher training days, etc.), and when your school will stop meals distribution this year.

Please continue to submit your meal applications! The free or reduced meal status for the 2020-21 school year will carry over through the first 30 days of the 2021-22 school year. If necessary, contact your installation's Child Nutrition Director for more information. Stay Safe!
