Welcome to Child Nutrition
July 21, 2021
On behalf of the Child Nutrition Staff:
Lisa Rhoades, Child Nutrition Supervisor, and the entire child nutrition department are happy to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year. We are looking forward to providing nutritious meals for our students to help enhance their learning abilities. Studies have shown that children whose nutritional needs are met have fewer attendance and discipline problems. Students are also more attentive in class.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that all children aged 18 and under will receive free breakfast and lunch the entire school year. We are hoping that this will benefit families as we go back to a new normal. Under this provision, we must offer all students free breakfast and lunch.
Although all students are considered free, we are asking families to fill out a Meal application form or an Income data form as collecting this data directly impacts our funding. The Meal application form has some extra benefits for families if it is filled out. Families can receive discounts on their utility bills such as gas and electricity. Spectrum offers lower internet rates for lower-income families. Some college application fees, PSAT/SAT, and AP testing fees for high school students can be waived by filling out a Meal application. We encourage anyone who thinks they may qualify regardless of if they are accepting meals to complete either application.
Thank you for your support to feed all of our students.
