Very exciting news!
We are very excited to announce that USDA extended some of the waivers we had in the spring during our COVID-19 closure.
This will allow us, just like in the spring, to provide FREE meals to all children 18 and under until December 31st, 2020.
Independently of the learning model that your child is receiving instruction this school year (HUUSD Hybrid, HUUSD Full Remote Academy, Homeschool, not yet enrolled in the school system) your child is automatically eligible for FREE Breakfast and Free Lunch daily. So even when they are at school they will be able to eat for free.
Please take advantage of this wonderful benefit, the more meals we serve the better it is for our Food & Nutrition Program, and to our community. More Meals Served really equals More Local Products into our schools! Which equals better nutrition to our students!
Our FREE meals are not only for families in need, and you won't be "taking a way" a meal from someone in need if you decide to get a meal for your child.
Your child may qualify for free or reduced meals at our schools.
You must complete a Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application, every school year.
We advise parents to return the application within the first week of the new school year. Use one application for all of the children in your household. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information. Your application and your child’s lunch status are confidential. You may apply for benefits at any time during the school year. If you are not eligible now but have a decrease in income, increase in household size, or begin receiving 3SquaresVT (formerly Food Stamps) or Reach Up, you may fill out another application at any time.
All reduced meals have no charge. Parents and guardians still have to fill an application.
If you need assistance in completing the application or more information
