The United States Department of Agriculture is allowing schools to provide meals for the 2021-22 school year through a provision of the National School Lunch Program called the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). A waiver has been issued in order to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to COVD-19.
Our school has chosen to use this waiver and operate the SSO which enables us to provide meals free of charge for all students. No application is required to receive this free meal benefit.
Even though school meals are free this year we still want families to fill out an Educational Benefits Form. Also known as Free & Reduced Application, it's more than just a free lunch! The program provides financial assistance for many other things, including sports/activities, instruments, technology, reduced class sizes, student support services, field trips and more. Your child(ren) may qualify for additional benefits such as reduced fees or the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) if the federal government extends this, which is a federal temporary emergency nutrition benefit that is loaded onto electronic cards for families to purchase food.
The Educational Benefits Form helps not just your family, but kids across the district in many ways. Just one form ensures continued funding to support ALL kids in our schools. Families MUST fill out a new application for benefits at the beginning of each school year or benefits will expire!
The Food Service program at Northland Community Schools offers nutritious breakfast and lunch choices daily. We are continually striving to offer new and healthier choices. Students in grades 7-12 may also purchase a variety of a la carte items.
If your child has a food allergy, please let us know so that we can best meet their needs.
