Food Service Update
The federal government has not extended waivers that allowed all children to receive free school meal, meaning SFASD will return to pre-pandemic practices in the 2022-2023 school year. This year, families who qualify are encouraged to participate in the Free or Reduced Priced Meals program to help offset the cost of daily breakfast and/or lunch. It’s easy to find out, easy to apply, and risk free. Income eligibility guidelines are available online and are based on your household size and income level. Families around the country have felt the impact in financial security due to the unprecedented disruption caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic. Be sure to apply for the financial support that your family may be eligible to receive.
