USDA Free Meal Program

USDA Free Meal Program
Posted on 11/04/2020
The Hoosic Valley Central School District will be providing free breakfast and lunch to any student enrolled in the district through June 30, 2021. The costs to this program are funded through the United States Department of Agriculture.

Here are some highlights of this program:

· It is available at no cost to the children or their families/guardians.

· It is available to ALL children, regardless of financial need.

· There is plenty of funding, and your participation in this program will not “take” meals away from any other student.

· It will save you precious time and resources on breakfast and lunch preparation!

· It will bring federal dollars into our school food service program.

Despite the program being free to all students, we do encourage families that may be eligible for free and reduced meals to please fill out the free and reduced application.

The district will still continue to sell snacks, which may be purchased with account funds or cash.

If you have any questions on this program, please reach out to the Cafeteria Manager, Michelle Gillespie at (518) 753-4458 x 2516 or mgillespie@hoosicvalley.k12.ny.us .

Thank you!

This additional federal funding is a continuation of the free meal program that the district operated during the summer.

This means that any student who buys breakfast or lunch at school will not be charged. Student account balances will be maintained until the USDA funding expires.

While any student may be served free meals, the district is encouraging families who normally submit the Free and Reduced Lunch Application to do so for the 2020-21 school year.
