National School Lunch Program (NSLP)
In 1946, Congress recognized the need for a permanent program that would provide schools with funding for student lunches. Legislation was implemented as the “National School Lunch Act”.
School Breakfast Program
The School Breakfast Program is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools. It began as a pilot project in 1966 and was made permanent in 1975.
Summer Food Services Program
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations.
Child & Adult Care Feeding Program (Early Education Centers)
The USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program plays a vital role in improving the quality of day care and making it more affordable for many low-income families.
After School Programs
After school snacks and suppers give children a nutritional boost and draw them into supervised activities that are safe and offer learning opportunities.
An Offsite program is an educational program that requires meal service but is at a location without a cafeteria/kitchen or has limited enrollment.
For the 2022-23 School Year, ALL students will receive meals free of charge.
