Free Breakfast and Lunch Meals Through December
The USDA – in an unprecedented move, due to the pandemic – is going to make school breakfast and lunch available FREE to all children through December 31. Lunch and breakfast will be available free every day to all students in attendance for in-person learning; the free program went into effect Thursday, September 3. This means that even students who are not ordinarily part of the free or reduced lunch programs will also be included in these free meal distributions. “In my 35 years of working with the school lunch program, the USDA has never done anything remotely like this,” said Lisa Griffin, director of Child Nutrition. “Meals will literally be free for all children, which is historic.”
