I had been waiting for this news but then my school district finally confirmed it…
Free school meals have been extended for all kids NATIONWIDE through December 31, 2020!
Free school meals were available this spring and then extended into the summer. Now, this decision ensures that all children have access to nutritious food as the U.S. continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic at least through December.
This of course includes Minnesota kids, so check your local school district’s website or social media pages for the latest updates. School districts have already shared this information, including Minneapolis and St. Paul. Each district is offering the food in different ways but it’s available to ALL kids regardless of income.
And picking up the food is good for your kids AND your school district in so many ways!
This past spring I wrote this article, “5 Reasons to Pick Up the Free Food from Your Child’s School District” and it went viral.
I then wrote this follow-up article “Another Reason to Pick Up the Free Food from Your Child’s School District (Possibly the Biggest One).“
The reasons are still the same – check it out!
