Free Meals to Students this Summer
June 05, 2017 - July 11, 2017 at TBA
|During the 2017-2018 school year, Richland One will continue to offer meals at no cost to all students, regardless of family income. The average district family could save more than $400 per child in a school year. Parents do not have to complete any forms or other paperwork.|
All 24,000 Richland One students will be able to eat breakfast, lunch, snacks and supper for free thanks to the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch Program. This fall will mark the third year of the district’s participation in the federal program.
The free meals, which follow federal guidelines for healthy school meals, will be provided at all 52 schools and centers in Richland One. Although meals are free for students, all adults, including staff and visitors, will have to pay for their school meals, which are still a bargain at just $2.50 for breakfast and $3.75 for lunch.
Media inquiries should be directed to the Richland One Office of Communications at 231-7504 or 231-7510.
