Free Meals for Elementary and Intermediate Students in School Year 2021-2022
Brock ISD announced its policy today that this school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. Each school/site or central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed upon request.
*Extra meals and a la carte items will be available for purchase.
*This funding does not remove any outstanding balances for school meals.
While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.
However, the Texas Education Agency is requiring public schools to collect and report the socioeconomic status of each student for the 2021-2022- school year. Families will have the opportunity to submit this information during the verification of enrollment or new student registration process.
