SUMMER MEALS

Salt Lake City School District Offers Free Summer Meals

Salt Lake City School District’s Summer Food Service Program will offer free meals to all children, ages 0-18, who attend summer school on campus. Both breakfast and lunch will be available free of charge. Breakfast will be served from 8:00 – 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be offered between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., to be scheduled by school administration.    Please contact your school for details.

Important changes this summer

With the end of federal waivers granting free school meal access for students and flexibility for school districts, we are no longer able to provide many of the valuable services that families have come to expect.

We can no longer:

·         provide take-home meals,

·         serve breakfast and lunch at the same time,

·         offer Grab & Go curbside service, or

·         allow adults to pick up meals without the child present.

Moving forward, each child must be present to personally select food components and consume their meal on site (exception: a piece of fruit can be taken home).  We appreciate your support in following these federal rules so we can continue this valuable service to our community.

NATIONAL SUPPLY-CHAIN DISRUPTIONS 

We have recently been forced to make slight changes to our menus. Last-minute changes by distributors who have been unable to fulfill all the supplies we’ve ordered have required schools to alter published menus. Most of the meal substitutions have been limited and likely went unnoticed. It will be some time before we see an easing in national supply-chain disruptions, which suppliers say are due to not having enough workers to fulfill orders, and these shortages are influencing local distributors and manufacturers as well. Our district is working hard to ensure students have healthy food options throughout the school year. However, there will be days when your child(ren)'s preferred menu option may not be available. Thank you for your patience and continued support.

Salt Lake City School District also faces a shortage of lunchroom workers and has dozens of openings for anyone who may be looking for work. You can find job openings at https://www.slcschools.org/departments/human-resource-services

FREE AND REDUCED MEAL BENEFITS APPLICATIONS

Households must submit a Free or Reduced Meal Benefit Application (or directly certify) to qualify for federal school meal benefits, Pandemic EBT funds, fee waivers, or any other local, state, or federal programs that require such status.  

Applications must be submitted after July 1 to qualify for federal meal benefits during the 2022-2023 school year.   

Parents are encouraged to complete an online free and reduced meal application at at the beginning of each school year during student registration.
