The United States Department of Agriculture is extending Free Meals for Students through the Summer Food Program.
All students in the Magazine School District under the age of 18 will receive free meals (breakfast and lunch) until December 31, 2020 as USDA money allows. The purpose of the extension is to assure that children have access to nutritious meals while the nation recovers from COVID-19.
Meals will be served at the Magazine Elementary Cafeteria for grades P-6 and the Magazine High School Cafeteria for grades 7-12.
Although students will receive meals at no charge through December 31, 2020, it is imperative that parents continue to work with their school districts in completing and submitting free and reduced meal applications. State and federal funds received by each district are determined by the free and reduced percentages collectively from meal applications. Families who have not completed a meal application are strongly encouraged to do so.
