Free Breakfast & Lunch
Monday, September 28, 2020
School meals (breakfast and lunch) are now available at no charge to all Silex R-I School District students under a temporary waiver from the USDA.
The free meal service will start on Thursday, October 1st and will continue through the end of December 2020 or until the federal funding is no longer available. All students are eligible for this program.
The Silex R-I School District is committed to ensuring no child goes hungry and has sponsored free meals and Owls Pals bags throughout the pandemic, even following the closure of our school buildings in the spring. The USDA waiver provides funding to ensure nutritious meals continue to reach all children in this unprecedented time.
There’s no need to apply for the benefit; all children through the age of 18 are automatically eligible for free meals.
