USDA EXTENDS FREE MEALS FOR 2021-22 SY
All students in the Walton County School District will be provided FREE breakfast and lunch meals for the 2021-22 school year. The US Department of Agriculture has extended waivers that Walton County Schools will operate under as our commitment to provide safe, healthy meals free of charge to children as the pandemic continues to disrupt the food and nutrition security of our most vulnerable. Students must pay for any a la carte items and enter their PIN when receiving free meals. Parents are asked to continue to fill out meal applications online or paper even though meals are FREE. Parents may not see the point of applying, but the percentage of students who qualify for free or reduced-priced meals provides funding for supplemental services in high-need areas. To continue to provide additional curriculum and extension of free meals, application completion by families is extremely important. Please remember, only one application is needed per household.
It is still EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, and families MUST continue to apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits even though meals are free through December. Because these forms impact educational funding and because the program will end in December, having an application on file for the current school year will help our district and eliminate families’ benefit disruptions in January. If your child has a current positive balance, please know we will hold your balance until January as well.
