Thanks to a USDA free meal waiver, Jordan School District Nutrition Services will begin offering meals at no cost to all enrolled students beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020 at all school locations. No students will be charged for breakfast or lunch.
All schools will serve free meals in the school cafeteria. The meals will be served based on current serving schedules already established at each school site. Online and at-home learners may pick up meals at specific times and locations designated by each school.
In addition, beginning September 14th, free lunch and breakfast for the next morning will be available curbside for all children 18-years-old and under at the following locations:
- Joel P. Jensen Middle
- Elk Ridge Middle
- South Hills Middle
Meal service at these three locations will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday. Children must be present to receive meals.Only children are eligible for free meals under this waiver.
USDA does not guarantee the length of this free meal waiver. They are committing to free meal service through December 31st, 2020 or until current funding runs out. Due to the potential expiration of this waiver, we are encouraging parents to continue applying for free and reduced meal eligibility so that they won’t experience a lapse in benefits.
