Summer Meals Texting Hotline:
No Kid Hungry will continue a national texting hotline to provide information about summer meals sites to children and families in 2018. Beginning in late May, children and families can text ‘FOOD’ or ‘COMIDA’ to 877-877 to receive information about meal service sites in their area. Last Month CNW announced USDA FNS is kicking off a new text number for Summer 2018. Households can text “Summer Meals” to 9779 to find Summer meal sites once the site finder is ready for this summer. Households now have two options that can be used to service sites in addition to KSDE’s Locate a Site Near You at www.kn-eat.org, SFSP!
The Wellness Committee would like to encourage the participation of our students. We are hoping to enlist a High School student and a Middle School student to be apart of the great things happening within the Wellness Plan. If your student is interested in health, physical activity, food and community involvement please notify anyone on our committee. Committee members are found on the Nutrition and Wellness page.

Encourage your student to know the entree choices before arriving at school. The kitchen prepares the entree from a meal count generated by first hour class, and wants your students choice to be available when they arrive in the cafeteria.
