School District of Tomahawk to provide free meals to all students for entire school year
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The School District of Tomahawk will provide free meals to all students for the entirety of the 2021-2022 school year, Food Service Director Dustin Tessmer announced earlier this week.
Tessmer said the district is able to provide free breakfast and lunch due to its participation in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s Seamless Summer Option through the end of the school year.
“This program provides additional support and flexibility for our district to continue serving meals to children while maintaining safety measures and managing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Tessmer said.
Tessmer noted that although receipt of free meals does not depend on an approved free and reduced-price meal application, the district is still processing them families may qualify for P-EBT benefits, as well as other school funding.
The free and reduced meal applications are available on the district’s website (www.bit.ly/3ATzgXK), all school offices and the Food Service office.
Drive-thru meal service will be available to all students on remote learning days, quarantined students, and all community children or siblings of district students ages 18 years and younger.
