Free meals may continue through Dec. 31In continuation of the summer food program, Jesup Community Schools is able to provide a full breakfast and a full lunch to all students free of charge.
Funds from the summer are still available to offer this service due to the stress the economy has been under during the last few months. This service is predicted to last until December 31, 2020 unless funds run out prior to that date. If that were to happen, parents and guardians will be notified as soon as possible. This is for complete meal trays only. If a child in 5th -12th grade utilizes the option to purchase seconds or extra milk, these are still charged accordingly.
Those residents who have applied for the free and reduced meal program are asked to continue to fill out paperwork as normal so the school lunch program can keep information recorded accurately.
If a parent or guardian has been receiving notices that your lunch account is below $10 or in the negative balance, make sure to bring those back to a functional balance based on food service needs.
For more information, contact Stella Pint at (319) 827-1700 ext. 1407 or Margie Knipp, (319) 827-1700 ext.l401.
