Free Breakfast and Lunch Opportunity
Alcorn School District is very excited to announce that we will be able to offer free breakfasts and lunches to ALL of our students. So, regardless of your child's current cafeteria plan, free, reduced, or full price, ALL students will eat for free!! This is made possible through funding from USDA and will be available to our students through the entire 2021-2022 school year.
Pursuant to the authority in Section 2202(a) of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the FFCRA) (PL 116-127), as extended by the Continuing Appropriations Act 2021 and Other Extensions Act (PL 116-159), and based on the exceptional circumstances of this public health emergency, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is establishing a waiver to allow the National School Lunch Program Seamless Summer Option (SSO) to operate when school is open during the regular school year, through June 30, 2022. This waiver is expected to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to the novel coronavirus (COVID–19).
Please contact your building principal or Peggie Bundy, Director of Child Nutrition, at 662-286-5591 if you have any questions. If you have not already done so, click on the link here and be sure to complete the free/reduced lunch application for the 2021-22 school year so we can be eligible for other opportunities such as this in the future!
