    Changes to Food Service for 2022-23

    Congress did not extend federal school meal waivers and school meals will no longer be available to all students free of charge effective at the start of School Year (SY) 2022-23.

    Schools must make available and resume processing free and reduced price meal applications from households for SY 2022-23. This ensures students in qualifying households receive free or reduced priced meal benefits and schools receive Kansas At-Risk funding. Students who do not qualify for free meals will be charged for each meal they take. For more information about cost of meals for full-price and reduced benefits, see the "Food Service" page under the District tab on the USD 509 website.

    Eligible Kansas Families Can Receive Internet Aid
    Internet Aid Available

    There are 346,000 eligible Kansans who have not claimed their Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) benefit. The Affordable Connectivity Program provides discounts of up to $30 per month off of their Internet bills for eligible households that meet program or income requirements, or up to $75 per month for households on qualifying tribal lands, as well as a one-time discount for up to $100 to purchase a laptop, tablet or desktop computer where available.

    All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced-price school meals under the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for ACP benefits. Households are also independently eligible if (1) their income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level ($55,500 for a family of four); or (2) a member of the household participates in certain other Federal benefit programs - including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance.
