Troy City Schools extend free lunch program

TROY — The Troy City Schools will be serving free meals to all of its students until the end of the 2020-21 school year.

Earlier this year, the district’s food service program received a federal grant that allowed it to serve free breakfasts and lunches to all students, regardless of financial need, through Dec. 31. That grant has since been extended, allowing the district to serve meals through June 30.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for our students and their families,” said Clint Hufford, Troy City Schools Director of Food Service. “We are so happy to be able to offer breakfasts and lunches at no cost to our students. This is an opportunity to help all of our kids, regardless of their financial situation. We know a lot of people were impacted financially by the COVID-19 global pandemic, so hopefully, this will take some of the burden off them.”

This program includes not only in-person students but also Troy Online Academy Students. All TOA students are delivered a week’s worth of breakfasts and lunches one day per week.

“That’s another program we are very proud of,” Hufford said. “It was important to us to be able to feed all of our kids, not just the ones who are learning in person.”
