Food and Nutrition Services utilizes a mobile unit to provide additional assistance for parents completing the Online Meal Benefit Application. During the 2020/21 school year, Food and Nutrition Services and schools provided computer access and support staff for parents, resulting in 100 percent of households completing a meal application utilizing the www.myschoolapps.com web site.
The District will be utilizing a United States Department of Agriculture Waiver resulting from the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, providing students the opportunity for free meals during the 2021/22 school year.
Although the waiver will allow for free meals, completing Meal Benefit Applications provide numerous opportunities to families. The Meal Benefits applications allow the District to provide free and reduced information for Title One and other grants.
Food and Nutrition Services staff will again provide assistance for the 2021/22 school year. The attached schedule identifies the date, time, and location in the District where staff will be located. The staff will be based at 21 centrally located sites providing assistance to 145 sites identified through application data. Food and Nutrition Services will inform parents of the schedule, via the District’s Parent Link phone messaging system.
“CDC guidelines will be practiced, including mask wearing and social distancing, at all sites.”
