Free School Meals: 2021-2022
The USDA extended the NO COST school meals to ensure that children continue to receive the nutritious breakfasts and lunches they count on during the school year wherever they are, and however they are learning. This unprecedented move is part of USDA’s unwavering commitment to ensuring all children across America have access to nutritious food as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
A la carte and extra meals may be available for purchase, Adult meals will be $3.95, and extra milk for students will be .50.
The USDA still requires families to complete a free and reduced application to receive additional benefits such as P-EBT cards, fee waivers, transportation, etc…. An electronic application can be found on PowerSchool or you can download a copy from the Linn-Mar webpage.
