MEALS ARE AT NO COST TO FAMILIES ALL YEAR!

Hello Parents/Guardians,

We are excited to announce that meals are FREE to ALL students for the 2021-2022 School Year.

  • We encourage all families to submit a meal application, if you usually qualify, as it provides additional educational funding for your school and benefits for your household. It will also ensure your student is covered for free meals the first 30 days of school for the 2022/2023 school year to avoid meal charges.
    • Eligibility guidelines can be found on www.yourchew.com, in the upper left corner, under meal applications.
    • Note - You do not need to complete a meal application if you have already received a letter indicating that your student has been directly certified.

September Menus:

Please view our menus online at www.yourchew.com for nutritional information.

Important Menu Update:

Last minute menu changes may occur frequently and are out of our control due to the nationwide food supply chain issues and labor shortages.

Menus on our website may not reflect these changes.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
