10/9/20 UPDATE to the information below:
At this time, L-BF is only approved for the Free meal program through December 31, 2020. After consultation with the Minnesota Department of Education, it is anticipated that funding for the program will be exhausted near the end of this calendar year. We will continue to keep families updated as we continue to receive new information. 

Please call the school if you have any questions regarding this change.

At the end of September, the Senate approved a government funding bill that includes nearly $8 billion in nutrition assistance. This bill will allow the USDA to extend special food service programs for school that were used last spring to provide free meals to all students.

Thanks to this funding opportuinity, 
meals (breakfast and lunch) will be FREE of charge to ALL L-BF students during the 2020-2021 school year, beginning retroactively on October 1st. This will remain in effect until further notice. 

Students will still be charged for ala carte items, milk only at lunch time, break time milk, and second helpings.

While the goal of the legislation is to provide meals to students at no cost for the remainder of the school year, this could change if government funding runs out in the program, in that case, we may need to transition back to our regular food service program. Until L-BF receives notice of the depletion of funding, we will provide meals free to students, hopefully through the end of the 2020-2021 school year!
