National School Lunch Program Cost Waiver for Student Lunches

All students in grades K-8 wishing to “Purchase” lunch through the school cafeteria will be able to do so at no cost. This nationwide waiver is available to all schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The program will continue through the end of the school year.

Our food service provider, Sodexo is also offering a “Pick 3 Free” opportunity for students.

This opportunity will exist through the end of the school year.
