TSC to provide free meals to all students
Sue Scott

The TSC is now offering a free breakfast and lunch to all TSC students through a program made possible by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).

"We want to ensure all of our students have access to nutritious food," says TSC Director of Nutrition Services Lori Shofroth Cords. "This program will help many of our families who might not qualify for free meals, but face challenges because of the impact of the pandemic." 

This program began on September 1, 2020. Students who paid for meals on or after that date will receive a credit to their lunch account. This program will continue until federal funding runs out or until December 21, 2020. 

Because this program will expire, parents are encouraged to continue to apply for free and reduced meal eligibility to prevent a lapse in benefits. If an application for this year has already been completed, there is no need to reapply. 

The current distribution of lunches for virtual students will continue. Parents of virtual students can sign up for lunches and pick them up at McCutcheon or Harrison High School on Fridays from 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm. Breakfast will not be included for virtual students.
