We have exciting news to share with you regarding the school meal service being provided for your child!
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced schools will be able to serve free meals to all children through December 31, 2020. This unprecedented move will help ensure – no matter what the situation is on-the-ground – children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
