USDA Seamless Summer Option Announcement
August 25, 2021
Dear Mt. Angel School District Families,
Mt. Angel School District is participating in the USDA Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year. This means that our school is providing free meals to all students! 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. Even though receipt of free meals does not depend on an approved free and reduced-price meal application, we are still distributing and processing them so Mt. Angel School District families may qualify for P-EBT benefits as well as other school funding.
When your child participates in our healthy and delicious school meals program it will save your family time and money. At breakfast, all children are served food items from three food components (grain, fruit, and fluid milk), and at lunch five food components (grain, protein, fruit, vegetable, and fluid milk) are served. For your child’s breakfast to be free, they must take the full meal provided, including ½ cup fruit or vegetable. For your child’s lunch meal to be free, they must take the full meal provided, including ½ cup fruit or vegetable. Milk only will be charged a fee and meals that do not meet the requirements described above will not be served.
Menus and nutrition information are always posted on our district website.
