USDA is Extending Summer Free Meal Program

On August 31, 2020 the USDA issued a press release stating they are extending free meals until December 31, 2020 or until the funds appropriated by Congress are exhausted. Our interpretation is these meals will be free to students based on this press release. Congress may also appropriate more money to feed students past December 31, 2020. We will fully communicate any changes on our website. In the event meals are no longer free, the prices are listed below.

 

Elementary Lunch  $2.55

Secondary Lunch $2.75

Breakfast all Grades $1.35

 

In the event the free emergency meal program ends, we will transition back to the paid, free, and reduced status using meal applications. We strongly encourage families to apply NOW using the application located on our website. https://www.eastiron.org/Page/4229
