Feeding children each day can be a financial burden on anybody. But of course children need healthy meals to learn. That is why there is a national free and reduced meal program many schools pledge to uphold – one of them is Charles City Community Schools. Communications Director Justin DeVore reminds parents that at any time this year, they can apply for this benefit.
A normal breakfast costs $1.50; lunch costs $2.70. If your family qualifies for reduced meals, the new cost is repressed to $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch. Select families can even apply for free meals.
