FREE School Meals
The Irene-Wakonda School District has finally met the criteria to be accepted into a program by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that allows ALL students in the District to receive meals at no cost to them. Both breakfast and lunch will be provided free with no income guidelines. This program is retroactively in effect from October 1st, 2020 and carries through the end of the school year or until the funding runs out.
Any meal purchased since the beginning of October will be credited back and funds placed in the student account for future use. Only breakfast and lunch meals are free. Any second milk, a second meal, or a la carte items will NOT be free. Students must have funds in accounts to purchase these items.
The USDA Summer Seamless Program was initiated and now extended, as a result of the CARES Act, which supports families during the COVID-19 pandemic. All students in pre-school to 12th grade will receive free meals.
