All Children Eat Free

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced this week that all school meals for children will be free through December, 2020. Because of this announcement, school meals will no longer be charged to a student’s account. All meals will be free to any child under the age of 18, regardless of ability to pay. Children do not need to be present for a parent to pick-up a meal.

For information on how to access free meals, please visit our website. Meals are delivered to select locations Monday-Friday. No meal service will be provided on Monday, September 7 due to the Labor Day holiday.
