NEW: Free Meal Waiver Set to Expire in June 2022
Child Nutrition waivers implemented by the federal government during the COVID-19 pandemic are set to expire this summer. One of the most important waivers was the Seamless Summer Food Program (SSO), which provided all students with free meals, regardless of income status. This waiver is set to expire on June 30, 2022. An extension is possible, but not likely. Please be aware that upon expiration of this waiver, meals will no longer be free to all families. Free and Reduced price meal applications will need to be completed in order to qualify for such meals. The applications will be available to fill out after July 1, 2022.
