USDA AND STUDENT MEAL UPDATES

We have been notified that to minimize the continued challenges during COVID-19, the USDA is allowing meals to be offered to all students at no charge from now through December 2020. Schools are still required to report meals according to USDA guidelines; therefore, families that wish to be considered for free and reduced meals under normal circumstances should still continue to complete the free and reduced lunch applications and send them back to the school. If you have any questions, please contact Angela Otlowski at otlowskia@harrisontwp.k12.nj.us or at (856) 478-2016 ext. 7153.
