Free Meals for All Students Starting Monday, Sept. 14


The USDA has issued Nationwide waivers for those districts who participate in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) the funding to provide FREE breakfast and lunch to all students through December 31, 2020, or until available funding runs out.

 

What does this mean for families? 

Starting Monday, September 14, all Waukee CSD students will receive free school meals (breakfast and lunch) through December 31, 2020, or until funds run out, whichever comes first. At that point, the student’s account will return to their original lunch status and charged accordingly. All money placed in the meal account will carry over until regular meal prices resume.  We will do our best to communicate in a timely manner any changes prior to December 31, 2020. 

Ala Carte items, second meals, and extra servings still need to be purchased by your student(s). 

Online students will be offered the grab and go meals that we are currently offering at the high school site located on the southeast corner of the building (bus lane area)  Monday through Friday 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Grab and Go Menu

How does this affect applying for free and reduced lunches?

We highly encourage Parent/Guardians to please fill out the Iowa Eligibility Meal Application to apply for free and reduced status at SchoolCafe.com so when we return to charging you will still receive the appropriate meal benefits.
