Dear Community R-VI Families:
We are excited to share the news that the USDA has recently announced an extension of free meals continuing into the fall months. On August 31, 2020, USDA, FNS released nine nationwide waivers extending flexibilities for the SFSP and NSLP-SSO through December 31, 2020.
This federal funding program is available through the end of the year or until the funds run out. There are no forms or registrations to complete to be eligible for these free meals.
In addition, those learning at home this semester can pick up a grab and go breakfast or lunch during the scheduled breakfast time of 7:30 a.m.– 8:15 a.m. and scheduled lunch time of 10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Pick up location is at the Community R-VI School District in the high school or elementary offices.
If you know if advance that you are picking up a breakfast or lunch, please email Kristi Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org. Meals will be available whether you have emailed or not, but having a count will help us plan and serve efficiently.
We hope this program will help our local families during this difficult time.
