When school lets out for the summer, kids 18 years old and younger can continue to receive
free nutritious meals from Boone Community School District. There is no application necessary
to receive meals and families do not have to show proof of income. The meals are funded by
the federal government to ensure kids and teens receive nutritious meals during June, July and
August.
These free meals can help families save time and stretch their household food budget while
providing children with sound nutrition and a connection to their schools during the summer.
Meals provided by school districts and nonprofit organizations are an important safety net for
hungry kids and families. According to hunger advocacy organization Feeding America, demand
at U.S. food shelves increased more than 55 percent following the outbreak of COVID-19 in
2020. In 2021, Feeding America estimates that “42 million people, including 13 million children,
may be at risk of hunger.”
FREE MEALS ARE AVAILABLE:
Monday - Friday at Boone High School Cafeteria
The varied meals all meet federal nutritional guidelines to ensure kids get the nutrition they
need for growth and development. The meals include foods such as walking tacos,hamburgers
chicken nuggets, fruit and/or vegetables, yogurt, crackers or chips and milk.
Kids and teens ages 18 and younger can just show up during the hours of operation. In addition
