Important Information:

In an August 31 announcement the USDA has extended free meal eligibility to all students through the 2020-21 school year.

This means all students will receive a free complete breakfast and lunch while in school or learning virtually.

Please be sure that if you feel your family qualifies for free or reduced meals that you continue to complete an application. This will ensure a seamless transition when the program ends and also ensures your family will receive other benefits that come with qualifying for the free or reduced program. Schools also rely on certain funding based on these applications as well.

For any questions please contact Evol Gazzarato, Food +Nutrition Director at evol.gazzarato@novik12.org or 248-449-1225.
