Free School Meals Begin September 2

Free School Meals Begin September 2

Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced it will provide flexibility in the school meals program which allows the District to provide free meals to children in the Oconto Unified School District.

The flexibility will continue until December 31, 2020, or until the available funding runs out. Starting September 2, the District is providing meals, breakfast and lunch at all school locations.

Free & Reduced Lunch

Since the District anticipates that after December 31, 2020, the District will need to return to charging for school meals, families are encouraged to apply to see if they qualify for Free & Reduced meals. 

To apply, please complete a paper application. Didn’t receive an app in the mail? You can ask for one from the school office or request one from Bailey Last, bailey.last@oconto.k12.wi.us.
