From Child Nutriton

The Child Nutrition Department received approval this morning to continue free meals (breakfast and lunch) for all students for December. TDA and USDA realizes our dilemma and has allowed us this option again.

We ask principals, teachers and counselors to please continue getting the word out regarding the need to complete a Residency Application if they are displaced/homeless. There are many definitions of displacement. Please spread the word so that we may capture more students and obtain free meals all year long for the children in those type of homes.

A Residency Questionnaire can be completed by the school counselor and forwarded to Child Nutrition. (Actually, we don't need a copy of the Residency Questionnaire, just a list of names, but we realize a copy may be easier). A separate meal application form does not need to be completed if counselors have a Residency Application on file noting displacement/homelessness.

Thank you for all you do!!
