EFB – FREE AND REDUCED-PRICE FOOD SERVICES
The District will take part, as feasible, in the National School Lunch Program and other food programs that may become available to see that all children in the District receive proper nourishment.
As required by law and regulations of the State, the Board will offer free and reduced price lunches and free milk to those qualifying children. In accordance with the guidelines for participation in these programs and the wishes of the Board, no child who a teacher believes is improperly nourished will be denied a free lunch, breakfast, milk, or other food simply because proper application has not been received from his parents or guardian.
The Superintendent will establish regulations that conform with requirements for participation in programs for free and reduced price meals and supplementary food. Such regulations will be reported to the Board as needed for its approval.
All financial records of these programs will be kept in a separate account by the treasurer.
