The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending flexibilities to allow free meals to be available to all children throughout the entire 2020-2021 school year. This unprecedented move is part of USDA’s commitment to ensuring all children across America have access to nutritious food as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. The flexibilities extended will allow all of our school to leverage the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) to provide no cost meals to all children through June 30, 2021. 

There is no application process, all students who participate in HCCS’ school lunch program will receive their lunch at no cost through the end of the school year. 


If you weren’t able to watch the student’s Halloween Parade, there is a video on our school Facebook page!
