2022-2023 Food Service Changes

Please review & share this important information for the 2022-2023 school year.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is requiring food services to return to typical pre-pandemic operations for the 2022-2023 school year.

This will mean that the flexibility & free meals that we have been providing for more than two years will come to an end. We want to share the news so that families have time to prepare for next year.

For the 2022-2023 school year:

  • Eligibility-based pricing returns which means the cost of meals will be either paid/reduced/free
  • Free/Reduced Meal Applications will be required from families 
  • Lunch ID Numbers will be required again for students
