Notice: Free Meals for All Students

School-Cafe-3.2
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved all schools to offer free lunch to all students regardless of income. Those schools that offer breakfast will be able to offer free breakfast to all students as well. This means students will receive their meals for FREE this school year.
Some things to keep in mind:

• Students must take the required components to make a reimbursable meal in order for it to be free. How students make a reimbursable meal will be posted/displayed in the cafeteria or during meal delivery. The cashier or other school staff will help students take a full reimbursable meal.
• If students purchase extras (such as a bottled drink) available in the serving line, a la carte (such as a singular milk or entree), snacks from vending machines, etc., the student will be charged for these items. If your student intends to purchase items other than a meal, please make sure there are adequate funds on their account.
• Nothing needs to be sent to the school in order to have a student receive meals for free. Free meals are automatically offered to all students regardless of income.
• Families that believe they would qualify for free and reduced meals normally, should still submit a free meal application as this can help with qualifying for other assistance programs for the family and student. Benefits from completing applications stretch far beyond the cafeteria and impact students in the classroom and at home. All information submitted in these applications is private and confidential.

FREE Breakfast and Lunch Meals for ALL Students - Extended!

spoon-2426623__340
ALL breakfast and/or lunch meals will continue to be available at NO CHARGE to ALL MSD of Mt. Vernon students.

The USDA has announced that the emergency waiver which allows ALL students to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day at school has been extended through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

What to Expect: We are not changing the daily menu, the food items offered, or the meal service experience. Students will select the minimum required items to create a meal, and that meal will ring up at no charge. Students can still pay for ala carte items, second entrees, or second meals at current pricing. Families can leave funds in student lunch accounts to be used next semester. To qualify for textbook assistance, though, eligible families must still complete a free or reduced application.

Virtual Students: Free Grab and Go meals will continue to be available to virtual students this semester. Contact your child’s school to make arrangements for pickup times.

We appreciate the flexibility allowed by the USDA to help our families, and we thank you for your continued support for Mt. Vernon Schools!

FREE LUNCH/BREAKFAST

pexels-pixabay-256520

FREE Breakfast and Lunch Meals for ALL Students

Effective tomorrow (Tuesday, September 15, 2020) ALL breakfast and/or lunch meals will be available at NO CHARGE to ALL MSD of Mt. Vernon students physically attending school.

On August 31, 2020, the USDA announced an emergency waiver which allows ALL students to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day at school. The Indiana Department of Education released guidance to Indiana school districts on September 9 allowing us to begin using the waiver effective immediately. Please note: This USDA waiver will be in effect until December 31, 2020 OR until available federal funding from USDA runs out, whichever comes first. Once the waiver ends or funds expire, breakfast and lunch meals will be charged to students normally.

What to Expect: We are not changing the daily menu, the food items offered, or the meal service experience. Students will select the minimum required items to create a meal, and the meal will ring up at no charge. Students can still pay for ala carte items, second entrees, or second meals at current pricing. Families can leave funds in student lunch accounts to be used next semester. To qualify for textbook assistance, though, eligible families must still complete a free or reduced application.

Virtual Students: At this time, we are not yet able to offer this service to our virtual students. The Food Service Department will be developing a workable plan to offer meals to our virtual students in the near future. Stay tuned for that plan!

We appreciate the flexibility allowed by the USDA to help our families, and we thank you for your continued support for Mt. Vernon Schools!
