The school system will take part in the National School Lunch Program and other food programs that may become available to assure that all children in the schools receive proper nourishment.
In accordance with guidelines for participation in these programs, and in accordance with the wishes of the Committee, no child who a Principal believes is improperly nourished will be denied a free lunch or other food simply because proper application has not been received from his parents or guardians.
