Lunches

Lunches are free for everyone through May.


Lunches must be preordered since they are catered into GAA. Watch for lunch order forms around the 15th of each month for the following month.


Free/Reduced lunch applications are available to complete anytime here. We recommend completing an application so if NSLP/USDA decides to continue with the P-EBT program they rolled out last year for families.
