Media Release for Seamless Summer Option Free Meals in School Year 2021-2022
Santa Fe Independent School District announced its policy today that this school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.
Starting on September 8, 2021 Santa Fe ISD will begin distributing letters to the households of the children in the district about these 2022-2023 eligibility benefits and actions households need to take to apply. Paper applications also are available at YUM! Nutrition Services located in the Cowan Education Center at 4133 Warpath Santa Fe, TX. 77510 or apply online at www.schoolcafe.com.
