We know the importance of providing healthy meals and the impact nutrition has on a student’s educational experience and their overall wellbeing. The Nutrition Services Department is excited to offer meals free of charge, to all children ages 18 and under, no questions asked. This is made possible through a waiver sponsored by the USDA (effective through June 30, 2022).
