The USDA has extended the free meal services to all students (18 years of age or younger) through the end of the current 2020-2021 academic year. Anderson School District Five Culinary Services will continue to provide FREE MEALS to ALL Anderson School District Five students through June 2021. This service applies to ALL students, both In-Person students AND Anderson Five Virtual Academy students. The current meal payment status of a student (as in, regardless if a student does OR does not receive Free & Reduced Lunch,) has NO BEARING ON ELIGIBILITY. Students who choose to bring their meal to school from home can STILL recieve free meals. Students who wish to purchase additional a la carte items (Ex: chips, cookies, soft drinks, etc.) may still do so, too. There is NO application necessaryfor ALL students to receive free meals through the serving line(s) at no cost.
