• The federal program that has allowed school districts across the country to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students regardless of income expired June 30, 2022.   Since 2020, this program has eliminated the need to collect payments for school meals for any student.  At this time, the federal government has not extended the program that allowed free meals for all students.  As a result, schools across the nation will be reverting back to free and reduced price meals based on income eligibility guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

    During the 2022-23 school year, families who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch will have to pay for school meals.  Families must reapply every year for free or reduced meals.  Students whose families are eligible for free or reduced price breakfast or lunch will be able to access meals next school year at no cost or a discounted rate. 

    If you have any questions, please contact Judy Cox at jcox@dist50.net.
