School starts Wednesday, August 26
Start the school year right with free school breakfast and lunch!
As your child heads back to school this fall, make sure you turn in your school meals application. Many families who think they won’t qualify discover that they do, so it’s worth it to turn in an application even if you’re not sure if you qualify. All students who qualify for school meals will receive breakfast and lunch at no charge. Strong participation in school meals also helps in other ways: the amount of grant money a school receives, and the opportunity to serve meals at no charge to every student during the summer and after-school, is all based on the percentage of students who enroll in our school meal program. By turning in your application, you are helping every child at our school. Strong participation helps your school’s meal program serve high-quality, delicious food and remain financially strong. Finally, when your child qualifies for school meals, he or she also qualifies for reduced college entrance exam and application fees!
It has never been more worth it for families to complete and return the school meal application. Enrolling your child in the school meal program helps your child access nutritious food at school to better concentrate and learn, and saves you time and money. If you need an application, ask your child’s school or visit www.vermontfoodhelp.com, and turn your completed application in to your child’s school today!
