This program is available without cost to those families PreK to 6th grade that meet the income guidelines. Applications are available at each school’s office.
Items may include pop-top canned meals, macaroni and cheese, soy/sun butter, cereal, fruit juice, shelf-stable milk, fruit, and granola bars. The food will be placed into a food bag and given to your child at the end of the day. The food is not intended to be opened until your child is home.
