Eat All Year – and Eat Free!

The United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) is picking up the tab for all students to receive free breakfasts and lunches for the rest of this school year. It doesn’t matter if student families can afford to pay or not, ALL students can pick up a free breakfast and a free lunch every school day. This decision is not income-based or need-based, and is being paid for by USDA. The more participants, the more money the local school district will receive from USDA.

USDA approves FREE breakfasts and lunches for ALL students!
