Child Nutrition Services

For the 2022-2023 school year, our District has become a Provision 2 food provider. Which means students may receive daily one breakfast and one lunch free at no cost to the student. Additional meals and snacks may be purchased with their students’ meal account and must have funds in their account. 

We are asking all families to fill out the Free & Reduced Meal Application. By doing this, it benefits the district in multiple ways and your family could qualify for lower utilities, internet fees, and other benefits. 

Meal Applications:

Since the District is now serving meals as a Provision 2 provider, families will need to fill out the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) meal application during this “base year.” Future school years families will need to fill out the Household Income Data form in order for the district to receive additional funding for student programs. Every 3-4 years it will be required to fill out an NSLP application.
