During the last school year, children and families benefited from no-cost school meals for all students, made possible by special permission from the United States Department of Agriculture. Unfortunately, these permissions have expired. St. Joseph Consolidated School and the Ohio Department of Education cannot extend the permission for no-cost meals for all students.
School meals will still be available to all students; however, they will not be free to all students. Households may apply for free or reduced price meals benefits by Wednesday, August 24, 2022. Applications are included in the link in this email and on our school website. Eligibility for free and reduced price lunch is based on federal income guidelines or participation in other programs such as SNAP and OWF.
Please turn in the form at the school supply drop-off night. If you cannot attend on that night, please mail or email the completed forms to school. It helps to have the students' accounts approved and set up before the first day of school.
