School Nutrition

Student meals will continue to be offered to students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.

Eligibility for Free or Reduced Meals Impacts Federal Grants

We need your help!  Even though meals will be provided to families at no cost for 2021-2022, we urge you to complete and return the qualifying application form.  The percentage of students eligible for free and/or reduced-price meals is used to determine the District’s eligibility for Federal grants and special program rates. Federal grant dollars are used to supplement academic programs.  Thank you for your assistance.
