School Meal Flexibility to Last through 2020-2021 Academic Year
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Friday that it is extending regulatory flexibility in light of the pandemic to allow schools to offer free meals to ALL children through the current academic year. USDA had previously approved flexibility through December. With the new meal waiver extension, free meals (breakfast and lunch) for ALL FCS students will continue through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
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…
