Thanks to a grant from the USDA, B-C-S School District will be able to provide a free breakfast and lunch daily to ALL students until the end of the 2020-21 school year! Originally this was going to be cut off in December. What this means is each student is entitled to a main entree, fruit, vegetables and milk daily for free. Your student can come through at breakfast and AGAIN at lunch for free meals. If a student wants a second entree, another milk or to purchase anything extra it will come out of the student’s account. This program is for any child ages 1-18.
