Subject: Change to Student Meal Program
No Paper USDA Applications Needed
The School District of Philadelphia is excited to announce that effective the first day of school, September 8th, all students will be offered daily breakfast and daily lunch meals at no cost regardless of family income.
There is no longer any need for each family to complete a paper USDA Meal Application and these forms will not be sent home with your child.
Since all breakfast and lunch meals will be provided free of charge there is no longer any need to send cash with your child to purchase school meals.
The District has implemented these changes to help improve overall student nutrition and ensure your child has a productive school day.
