The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has offered waivers for the last two years to Child Nutrition (CN) Programs across the United States, providing all students breakfast and lunch at no charge.
Officials from Bellefontaine City Schools note that these waivers will expire on June 30, 2022.
This means that starting next school year, the CN programs across the nation will return to normal, pre-pandemic operations.
Families will need to complete a Free/Reduced Meal Application to qualify for the program.
Meal applications will be available July 1 on the BCS website in Final Forms; or families can print a form off the BCS website or pick up an application at a school in August.
Applications submitted before July 1, 2022, will be denied.
