All UCPS students eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended a waiver that will allow all Union County Public Schools students to receive breakfast and lunch free of charge until Dec. 31, 2020.
In addition, any person 18 years and under will now be able to grab a meal from UCPS curbside locations.
“We are extremely thankful to the USDA for this waiver,” said Denise Lamar, Director of UCPS School Nutrition Services. “This will help many families who may have a financial hardship right now due to the pandemic.”
Students who eat at school will be required to provide their student ID number. A la carte items are also available for purchase at regular prices.
As a reminder, lunch is available through a curbside pick-up model Monday – Friday, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the following locations. The curbside meal option is open to any person 18 years and under. Lunch ID numbers are not required.
Curbside meals are available at the following schools:
Forest Hills High
Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle
Porter Ridge Elementary
Rock Rest Elementary
Rocky River Elementary
Shiloh Valley Primary
Students with special dietary needs indicated by a Diet Order form on file are encouraged to call the school where they will pick up a meal the day before to make accommodations.
