USDA Meal Service Waiver

The U.S. Department of Agriculture extended waivers allowing students a breakfast and lunch option available at no cost. The meals available at no cost are the posted school lunch and breakfast menu. A la carte items are not included as part of the no cost meals. A la carte items will continue to be available for purchase. Meals are also available for pick-up at all schools for anyone 18 years old or younger. Meals available for pick-up are modified for safety and may not reflect the menu served in the cafeteria. It is preferred that children are present for meal pick-up. If the child/student is not with the parent for meal pick up, USDA requires a form of ID. Valid forms of identification may include, but are not limited to, school identification card, child’s passport, government-issued child identification card, or any document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree; doctor, clinic, or hospital record; religious record; or daycare center record.

Meal pick-up times are as follows:
Middle Schools and Gaines/Transitions: 8:30-9 am
Elementary Schools and K-8 Schools: 9 – 9:30 am
High Schools: 9:45 – 10:15 am

*Gamble Rogers Middle School: 8 – 8:30 am

Meal pick-up locations vary by school. Please contact the Cafeteria Manager at each school for the pick-up location.

The program will begin on September 10, 2020. The longevity of this extension is dependent on funding.
