News Release: Free Meal Extension

Early the week of August 31, the USDA announced the ability for school districts to provide free meals under the COVID-19 SFSP Nationwide Waiver for any child under the age of 18. What this did was extend the summer food service program through December 2020. Park County School District 1 Food Service Director, Jill Queen and Mary Jo Lewis, coordinator of business services, met with the Wyoming Department of Education food service staff to make sure that we clearly understood the details of what is and isn’t allowed with this waiver since we have students now in school. The option the district will currently operate under is the summer food service program closed enrolled site. This would be a site, where all of the students enrolled would eat and be claimed free whether they are eating breakfast and/or lunch at the physical school building or picking up meal(s) and eating them at home while learning virtually. It would be closed and available only to those that are enrolled at that site. Please see the news release free meal extension for all important information.
