Free meals now offered for all Penn Manor students

All Penn Manor students are now eligible to receive free breakfasts and lunches through the end of the 2020 calendar year under a school meals program that was recently extended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Beginning September 17, Penn Manor students can receive the standard breakfast or lunch offered at any of our schools at no charge. This applies to students enrolled in both the Blended Learning and Penn Manor Virtual School programs. 

Families will be charged for snack items and other extras not included in the regular daily breakfast and lunch menu.

All students will be offered meals automatically when they are physically in school. On the days they are not in school, meals must be ordered in advance to be sent home with students or picked up. Penn Manor Virtual School students also are eligible for meals whenever school is in session.

Meals must be ordered in advance each week using this order form.

Group A students will receive their meals to take home at the end of the day on Tuesday for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Group B students will receive meals to take home at the end of the day on Friday for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Meals for Penn Manor Virtual School students must be picked up at one of the middle schools from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Mondays.

At this time, it is not clear if the free meals program will be extended beyond December 31, 2020. Because of that, families that may qualify for the free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch program should fill out an application if they wish to continue to receive free or reduced-price meals in 2021.
