USDA Extends Nationwide Meal Waiver
Due to a nationwide meal waiver extension from the USDA, Fostoria City Schools will provide free school meals to ALL students enrolled in the Fostoria City School District. At the present time, this extension is approved until September 30, 2020. All students will qualify to receive free meals (breakfast and lunch) until then.
We are asking that families still complete the free and reduced lunch application and turn it in so we can process results before we are required to return to our regular lunch program. The application is available here: https://www.fostoriaschools.org/…/FS_Free-Reduced_Lunch_App…
