Meal Service Announcement
USD 434 District Patrons,
Food Service is excited to announce that we elected to participate in a nationwide waiver that allows our sites to participate in the Summer Food Service Program during the actual school year. This means that we can provide free breakfast and free lunch to all students currently enrolled in our district. This includes in-person and remote learners. This will begin Tuesday, September 8th.
The program will only run through December of 2020 or when federal money is no longer available. Whichever deadline is met first, meals for students will return to being charged at the household's personal eligibility rate. So, please continue to send in free and reduced meal applications. If the students in your household have outstanding balances on their meal accounts please continue to pay the balances down.
Even though both breakfast and lunch are free, a la carte items will still be charged to the student's accounts. For example, extra milk will still cost .40 cents, the high school students will still be allowed to purchase their a la carte items. Students' meal accounts will need to be in a positive balance and enough money to purchase a la carte items.
If there are any questions please reach out to Tosha Smith firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-836-9525, and press 1 for the high school.
