When I received the email about ALL Quincy Public School students receiving free lunch through December 31, 2020, I had to read it twice.

An email to all QPS students went out yesterday informing families that the food service department received funding so that ALL students, no matter the income, will be receiving free breakfast and lunch through the end of 2020. The funding has only been approved through the end of the year.

This does include students who are remote learning, is you have not signed up for meals you will have to do so in your skyward account. Money will still be needed on students accounts if the wish to have milk or juice, that is not included in the free meal. If you have a student who doesn’t received free lunch and now will, there is no additional paperwork that needs to be done. Free meals will start next week and go through December 31st, unless you have a student who is remote learning, since there is some preparation that needs to take place to get remote leaving meals ready.

This will help so many families, mine included, to save a little money here and there. We have an outstanding food service department for Quincy Public Schools, so a BIG shout out to everyone who helped make this happen for Quincy Public Schools students.
