LAKESHORE SCHOOLS USDA MEAL WAIVER INFORMATION
September 16, 2020
Dear Lakeshore Parents/Guardians,
On August 31, 2020, the USDA granted a waiver to extend access to free meals for students at
school. The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue stated “As our nation reopens and
people return to work it remains critical our children continue to receive safe, healthy, and
nutritious food.” This will continue until December 31, 2020.
All Lakeshore students are eligible to receive 1 free breakfast and 1 free lunch each on regularly
scheduled school days. These two free meals must contain the necessary items that would
qualify for reimbursement. Therefore, a la carte does not qualify. In addition, if a second meal
or drink is requested (typically High School) then these meals and/or drinks are available to
purchase at regular prices. If you bring your lunch and want to purchase a drink, these are
available for $.60 cents. This waiver also applies to Virtual students; they are eligible to receive
1 free breakfast and 1 free lunch. Pick up is at the High School on Mondays (for 3 breakfast,3
lunch) and Wednesday (for 2 breakfast and 2 lunch). The time for pick up is 5 p.m.-6 p.m.
Please wear a mask and social distance when receiving these meals.
Please continue to fill out free/reduced meal applications as the District needs to know who may
qualify for free or reduced meals as this waiver ends December 31, 2020. In addition, this
information is used for various grants and other programs such as the EBT cards.
All accounts charged the first week of school have received credit. We will not issue refunds at
Thank you and please call me at 269-428-1400 with any questions.
