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”.
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.
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 2023-24 School Year, ALL students will receive meals free of charge.
