USDA Provides Free Breakfast and Lunch for All Students


The United States Department of Agriculture, also known as the USDA, is providing community meals between now and the end of the school year or for as long as the funding lasts. This is to help families who are facing food shortages because of the ongoing pandemic.

Any Millard student or family member between the ages of 1 through 18 can receive the meals free of charge whether they are physically in school, participating as a remote learner, or are another child in the household. No paperwork or free/reduced meal forms are necessary to receive a free breakfast and lunch.

Students who are in the building will continue their normal meal procedures in the cafeteria. A curbside order form can be completed for children who are not physically in school. This order form must be completed by 9:00 a.m. the day of pick-up. To access the menu and form, click here and then look under 'Free Community Meals.'

Meals for all your children, regardless of grade level or age, can be picked-up from the selected school site between 10:00 am and 11:00 am daily. 

A la carte items like extra milk, snacks and C-Store purchases are not covered by the USDA, and children will need money in their account if they wish to purchase any of those items.

Any money spent on reimbursable breakfast and/or lunch items since September 1st has been credited back to your student’s meal account. Your My School Bucks account should show records of a deposit on or around September 15th.


Once the funding from the USDA sponsors program has exhausted, then a 2020-2021 free/reduced meal application will need to be on file to receive meal benefits. If you haven’t done so already, we recommend submitting an application for the 2020-2021 school year.
