Free School Meals Program Extended by USDA

New Lebanon CSD would like to let families know that all students are now eligible for free school meals due to the USDA extending its free summer meals program.

The USDA recently announced it was extending the program until December 31, or until available funding expires, to help ensure children have access to school meals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, students who purchase breakfast or lunch at school will not be charged. Student account balances will be maintained until the USDA funding expires.

Families who may qualify for the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program are also encouraged to submit applications for the 2020-21 school year. This will help ensure qualifying families continue to receive meals at no charge when the free summer meals program extension expires. Please contact Pat Metzler at or 518-794-7600 Opt. 2 with any questions.
