All students can pick up five free breakfasts and lunches from the buses per week. The student or the parent will need to provide the name of the student, building he or she attends and the four-digit pin number to receive the free food.
In addition to Urbana’s free breakfast program, free lunch will now be available starting on Monday, Sept. 14. The district said extra entrees and a la cart items will also still be available for purchase.
Springfield City Schools is offering five breakfast and five lunch meals per week to each virtual learning student from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Parents or guardians can pick up meals based on the home school of their residence at either the District Service Center, 651 E. Home Road, for Horace Mann, Lagonda, Simon Kenton, Snowhill, Warder Park, Roosevelt, Schaefer and Springfield High School, or at The School of Innovation, 601 Selma Road, for Fulton, Kenwood, Lincoln, Perrin Woods, Snyder Park, Hayward and The School of Innovation.
Other districts that will allow students to get free meals include Southeastern, Graham and Triad Local Schools.
This extended program will allow Summer Food Service Program and Seamless Summer Option meals to be served in all areas at no cost, permit meals to be served outside of the group setting and meal times, waive meal requirements, and allow parents or guardians to pick-up meals for their children.
This program will run through at least Dec. 31, or until available funding runs out.
