FREE MEAL PROGRAM

Posted on 09/09/2020
USDA has approved free meals at all schools for all children 0-18 years old. Douglas County School System School (DCSS) Nutrition began serving free meals as of September 1, 2020, at no charge to the students based on the extended eligibility of the Seamless Summer Option, which expires on December 31, 2020, or until funding is no longer available. Students attending school in-person are eligible for Breakfast and Lunch at no cost during the school day. Students who are attending school virtually only are eligible for curbside pick-up on Mondays from 4:00-6:00 PM (pre-ordered through school café). Pre-ordering dates are the week before the pick-up day, from Monday through Thursday. Parents will need to add funds to School Cafe if they would like for their student(s) to have second helpings and ala carte snacks like cookies and chips. Please complete meal applications through School Cafe to determine eligibility and to ensure your student may continue benefits when this temporary program ends. School Nutrition works hard every day to ensure students receive fresh and quality meals with student safety as a priority. We are excited that the USDA has extended this program to feed hungry children in our community. With the support of the Superintendent Trent North and DCSS Board Members, we intend to Fuel our Future of Douglas County.
