    • Each student will receive a box with seven days of breakfast and lunch.
    • If your child has a food allergy or medical condition that requires modifications to their diet, please contact Alex Turnbull, Registered Dietitian at alexandra.turnbull@edinaschools.org.

    We are currently operating under the USDA Summer Food Service Program where students will receive the following items in their meal kits:

    • Breakfast: Whole grain entree 4 oz 100% juice and 1% milk
    • Lunch: Entree (whole grains and meat/meat alternate), fruit and vegetables and skim chocolate milk

     

    Free meals extended through 21/22 school year!

    The USDA has extended the free student meal program through the 2022 school year. This means all students under age 18 may receive a free breakfast and free lunch through the 21/22 school year, if they choose, through EPS Food and Nutrition Services. Student eligibility status is NOT required for the SFSP program so lunch accounts will NOT be charged; all meals are free.  However, we still encourage families to apply every year to qualify for additional benefits.  Please stay tuned for more information regarding the 21/22 school year food service program.  

     

    Apply for lunch benefits to qualify for additional opportunities!

    Although qualifying for meal benefits is not necessary to receive free meals, it is still very important to complete the meal benefits application as soon as possible! Qualifying for meal benefits also qualifies students for additional benefits, including: free ACT testing; participation in College Possible program; college scholarships; some government benefits; and discounts for things such as Comcast internet service, and tickets to various museums.

    You should apply if:

    • Your family qualified for meal benefits last year -- a new application MUST BE SUBMITTED EACH YEAR.
    • Your family applied last year but did not meet income guidelines. The guidelines change a little each year and you may now qualify for benefits.
    • Your household income has been affected by unemployment, health crisis, death or other circumstances.
