Sulphur Springs ISD Media Release for Seamless Summer Option Free Meals 2021-2022

Smiley face

Sulphur Springs ISD’s Child Nutrition Department announced its policy for this school year,
healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s
application must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued a guidance that allows
schools to offer free meals to all students under the Seamless Summer Option (SSO), at no cost,
for the 2021-2022 school year.

While no application or eligibility determination is required for your student to receive free meals under SSO this school year, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.

Because of this likely outcome, Sulphur Springs ISD will process household applications during the school year 2021-2022, for Middle School and High School
students only, as in years past. The online application is now open at Meal App Now.

through 5th grade will continue to be free campuses under the CEP program in the school year 2022-2023.
