Sulphur Springs ISD will offer free school meals to all students ages 18 or younger. The meals are available regardless of eligibility through the USDA Food and Nutrition Service nationwide waivers. The service started Monday, November 2, 2020, according to an October 30 release from SSISD Director of Child Nutrition Veronica Arnold.
Grab and Go curbside meals will continue to be offered at Barbara Bush Primary for SSISD virtual students. Meals will also be offered for children who are not in school, however, the child’s parent or guardian will need to provide birth certificates. These meals offered at Bush Primary may be picked up between 12:45 and 1:15 p.m. weekdays. Those planning to pick up meals for students and children are asked to contact the SSISD Child Nutrition Department so SSISD staff can be prepared.
Any money currently left in student accounts can be used to purchase a la carte items. Money may also be added to students accounts for extra purchases as well. Parents will be required to pay any charges already incurred and owed on their students’ accounts.
Questions about the free school meals offered by the SSISD Child Nutrition Program thanks to the USDA nationwide waivers may be directed to SSISD Director of Child Nutrition Veronica Arnold.
