USDA Program Expands Free School Meals Through June

The Liverpool Central School District Food Service Department is committed to feeding all of its students healthy, nutritious and tasty meals even though school looks different this year.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced an expansion of the free school meals program it announced at the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

From now until the end of June, the LCSD Food Service Department will feed all students at no charge regardless of income status. The district is able to do this under a special program through the USDA.

In the event that funding for this program runs out prior to the end of June, students will once again need to pay for their meals unless they qualify for free/reduced priced meals.

As a reminder, the price of school lunch for the 2020-2021 school year did not change for Liverpool Central School District students. Students at the elementary and middle school levels will continue to pay $2.55 for a school lunch, while students at the high school level will continue to pay $2.80. The price of milk will remain 70 cents.

The Food Service Department recently mailed home copies of the free and reduced meal application for the 2020-2021 school year. If you did not receive an application, or need to download another copy, click here.

If you haven’t done so already, please submit your free/reduced application as soon as possible as this information is still time sensitive and important.
