Dear Liberty-Benton Families,
Last week, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) would extend several flexibilities for school meals throughout the remainder of 2020. “As our nation reopens and people return to work, it remains critical our children continue to receive safe, healthy, and nutritious food,” the USDA said.
All Liberty-Benton students will be eligible for free meals whether learning is in the classroom or virtually. Families with children who are not yet school-age are also eligible for meals under this program.
Meals will be available for curbside pick-up from 11:00 – 11:30am, Monday-Friday at Liberty-Benton High School (Board Office entrance) for those students who are in our Eagle Academy. Students who are on-site will receive their lunches as they leave at the end of their “Blue” or “Red” group. Lunches will include an Entree, vegetables, fruit and milk. Cereal and other assorted breakfast items, along with a fruit, and milk will be provided for breakfast.
We remain committed to providing students access to healthy, nutritious and wholesome meals while assuring the utmost food safety without compromising quality. Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions.
