We are happy to announce that once again St. Joseph Consolidated School has been approved by the U.S Department of Agriculture through the National School Lunch Program to provide free lunches for all of our students for the entire 21-22 school year. This is effective immediately for all families. Students should order lunch in their homerooms as normal. The free lunch that will be provided is the regular hot lunch including one milk. It does not cover extra milk or extra entree. It also does not apply to milk for packers.
If you have a credit amount in your lunch account it will remain in the account for use after this school year. If you have any past due amounts at this time, please send in payments ASAP. If you have any questions please contact the cafeteria at email@example.com
