Nawayee Center School offers free meals


Nawayee Center School is now participating in the National School Lunch Program. Households with incomes that meet the guidelines are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Households with children who are currently certified for Food Assistance, MN Family Investment Plan or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations are automatically eligible for free school meals by completing an application.

Households may apply for school meal benefits at any time during the school year if circumstances change. Children whose parents or guardians become unemployed may be eligible for school meal benefits based on their household income during the period of unemployment. Foster children are usually eligible for school meal benefits regardless of the income of the household with which they reside.

All meals meet nutritional standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and are available to participants without regard to race, age, color, sex, disability or national origin. The guidelines are effective July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010.
